The [course_title] introduces you to chemical rocket propulsion systems for launch, orbital, and interplanetary flight. Topics discussed in the course are the modelling of solid, liquid-bipropellant, and hybrid rocket engines, thermochemistry, prediction of specific impulse, and nozzle flow including real gas and kinetic effects. Apart from these, structural constraints, propellant feed systems, turbopumps, and combustion processes in solid, liquid, and hybrid rockets will be discussed in the course.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.
