Become a Sponsor


UVic Rocketry is a not-for-profit group of students working on our own time during academic semesters to make this rocket a reality. We are entirely funded through donations, grants, and some program funding. We do our best to balance cost and quality, but cutting corners doesn’t lead to mission success. YOU could make the difference that gets this rocket off the pad.

Take a look at our Subsystems

With an expected top speed of around Mach 0.8 the MVP-1 could keep pace with a modern transcontinental passenger jet. The rocket weighs in at around 24 kilograms and is approximately 3 metres long. The body of the rocket is made of carbon fibre composite, with additively manufactured nose cone and fins. MVP-1 has two parachutes. A drogue parachute that deploys just after apogee, and a main parachute which deploys at 1,500 feet above the ground. All components on the rocket must perform flawlessly to have a completely successful launch and recovery.
