Sheffield University Nova Rocket Innovative Design Engineering
The first student-led
Rocket Design Team to represent the UK in the world's largest international university rocket competition
22 - 26 June, 2021
SunrIde (Sheffield University Nova Rocket Innovative Design Engineering) is a team of students from 1st-year undergraduates to PhD students,
from various Science and Engineering departments of the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. The team was formed in 2017
with an objective of bringing together engineering skills and innovation for amateur rocketry.
We are a passionate team of students striving for excellence through engineering innovation with the intention of acquiring hands-on rocketry and space technologies experience and developing our engineering acumen. We aspire to build a platform for students of all levels of expertise to learn and have hands-on experience in rocketry and its adjacent technologies. We aim at achieving that by integrating students’ projects into our rockets designs and payloads, collaborating with other universities and companies across the UK, and providing teaching materials and activities in all forms to students thriving to learn about rocketry.
Achieving such goals requires building a fluid team spirit. Therefore, what makes us productive and special as a team is that we provide a fair chance to exchange knowledge, time, and experience between all students and from alumni to current members. Following our belief of providing the best environment to get a dynamic work ethic and the best out of individuals, we arrange socials, take part in conferences and events to encourage our members to bond and communicate better.
