Cal Poly Space Systems


Cal Poly Space Systems (CPSS) is a dynamic club originally conceived as an Aerospace Engineering club, CPSS now welcomes students and volunteers from all majors, colleges and backgrounds. As our projects grow more complex and sophisticated, we continue to expand our pool of resources in order to design, build, launch and test to our limits. CPSS embraces Cal Poly’s “Learn by Doing” philosophy, and offers hands-on training in all areas of rocketry design including propulsion, structures, controls, and electronics. Members become familiar with how rockets work, how to build them, and use that knowledge to create more advanced club projects.
