StrathAIS is dedicated to the pursuit of aerospace innovation at the University of Strathclyde. Our focus is on entering student competitions held by the biggest aerospace companies and organisations, in the fields of both aeronautics and astronautics, for our members to gain practical experience of exciting projects. In our year of foundation, 2019, we attracted nearly 70 active members with different interests, backgrounds and skills. From designing a fully functional lunar base camp to the aerodynamics of a spaceplane, we have something for everyone who is passionate about aerospace.


In 2020 our flagship project STRATHcube was founded and aim to be the first scottish student built satellite to tackle the need for sustainable aviation and the responsible usage of space.  StrathAIS  already completed an initial design for the satellite who's mission it is to track and cataloge space debris during its mission duration. Our team are working on finalising the design before eventually building and launching our satellite into space! 

Spaceport America Cup 2022

The StrathAIS Rocketry branch was founded the following year in 2021 where a team of 20 students participated in the Spaceport America Cup, the worlds largest intecollgiate rocketry competition where we launched our rocket Strathosphere to 10,000ft. Check out our video summary here:


September 2022 marks the fourth year of the society; we will be building on the successes of our previous years to enter even more ambitious and exciting competitions. This year we will be continuing our branches in rocketry, space systems and aviation and will be running the following three projects:

  • Spaceport America Cup 2023 - Build a rocket capable of reaching 10,000ft to launch at the world's largest student rocketry competition!
  • STRATHcube - Develop our flagship CubeSat project 'STRATHcube', build a prototype CubeSat, support our Master’s team and help us get one step closer to launch!
  • BMFA Payload challenge - Build a remote controlled plane to enter into the BMFA Payload challenge!

We are looking for motivated students of any stage or degree to help us on this journey. To find out more, contact us and follow us on our social media channels.
