WHO WE ARE
Started by a group of ten passionate students in the spring of 2016, we are a group of dedicated Virginia Tech students devoted to becoming the first collegiate organization to deliver an object into Low Earth Orbit. OLVT is comprised of students with expertise in avionics, structural design, electronics, propulsion, launch operations, trajectory analysis, and business. We are proud to have the support of the Kevin T. Crofton Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Department at Virginia Tech as well as the Electrical Engineering Department at Virginia Tech and hope to bring other colleges and departments on board in the near future. Today, the team has over one hundred members studying across multiple departments and colleges at Virginia Tech. We are humbled by the diversity of the areas in which our members study, and are dedicated to providing them the best hands-on career-oriented experience they can find on campus.
