INTERCOLLEGIATE ROCKET ENGINEERING COMPETITION

2015

PROJECT EREBUS

The Akronauts made University of Akron history in June 2015 by launching and fully recovering the University’s first experimental sounding rocket. Despite several unforeseen complications at IREC 2015, the team demonstrated ingenuity and resilience in re-engineering Project Erebus from a two-stage, to a single stage rocket, in a period of 36 hours.
