The Liquid Propulsion Laboratory (LPL) is interested in recruiting students that are ‘A’ players. Here at LPL we describe an ‘A’ player as an individual that is eager to challenge themselves mentally, willing to volunteer a significant portion of their time, and one that is excited about designing, building, and testing liquid rocket engines. Individuals will be expected to use the knowledge gained through academia and apply it in a hands-on extracurricular setting. Candidates should be technically competent in all that they do, highly resourceful, and continually driving new and creative ideas to improve all areas of the lab.


Applications for Fall 2018 will begin at the beginning of August 2018.

Preferred Skills:

  • GPA of a 3.5 or higher
  • Currently pursuing a graduate degree in the field of STEM. Undergraduates are not disqualified but must be highly active, demonstrate a willingness to learn, and strive to become a solid contributor to the team.
  • Hands-on engineering experience through lab research, previous projects, or work experience
  • Great communicator and works well in a team environment
