Purpose:
The Texas A&M University Rocket Engine Design Team (TAMU RED) is dedicated to the development of liquid fuel bipropellant rocket engines.

Through this process, members learn about all aspects of engineering - design, manufacturing, and test - while also gaining hands-on experience with manufacturing techniques. In addition to honing their engineering abilities, members will also learn business and communications skills while working with a team of dedicated students to build a 500+ lb thrust rocket engine.
