The course aims to provide the introductory knowledge required in the rocket propulsion, the technology, the efficiencies and the rocket propulsion systems design.
It introduces the student to the basic principles, the physics and the design of propulsion systems for the space vehicles. Emphasis is given to the chemical (liquid and solid fuel) propulsion systems.
At the end of this course the student will know the different propulsion systems, their operating principles, their key applications, definitions of key terms and design parameters (thermodynamic, nozzles, flight performance, fuel), and make basic performance and design calculations of rocket systems as required for basic flight missions.
