The SEDS UNLV chapter was established in January of 2019 as a science and engineering based student organization aimed at developing a variety of space-related endeavors. The organization aims to bring together students passionate about space to work on challenging projects, as well as fostering interest among the student body in space exploration.

SEDS-USA was established in 1980 and is the largest student-run space organization in the world, consisting of an international community of high school, undergraduate, and graduate students from a diverse range of educational backgrounds in chapters all over the world.
