Who We Are?

A student Rocketry organisation in the heart of Norways space industry

Ignite UIT is a student organization dedicated to the design, construction, and launch of our very own rocket. We are a collective of enthusiastic and curious students driven by the desire to delve into the realms of space and rocket science. 

Our mission is to foster an inclusive community that welcomes students from every academic background. The only requirement being that you love space and rockets!


Ignite UiT was founded in the beginning of 2023 by a group of students interested in space and rockets. 

In light of the thriving space industry in our region, notably with organizations like Andøya Space and Kongsberg Satellite Services leading the way, the timing couldn’t have been more opportune for us students to establish our own space-focused organization.

What we offer

Ignite UIT offers a practical approach to learning through knowledge, collaboration, and creativity. Members of the organization have the opportunity to work on all aspects of rocket production, from design to production. 

Ignite UiT plans to participate in Eurorock 2024 – European Rocketry Challenge with our first project called Stallo.
