UVIC SATELLITE DESIGN

OUR MISSION

Create an engaging, welcoming place for fellow students to learn what it takes to put something in space.

The end product is a flight ready spacecraft which is rated for deplyment from a Nanoracks CubeSat Deployer (NRCSD).

How?

We implement an engineering and management model based on those developed at NASA, in industry, and at other universities.

Anyone interested in what we do is encouraged to contribute in a capacity they feel comfortable with.

What we do

We compete in the Canadian Satellite Design Challenge, a two year competition between university teams across Canada for a chance to launch the winning cubesat.

The cubesat is designed, built, and tested according to mission requirements defined by the competition and launch provider.

During this process, our members

  • learn about the challenges associated with designing space-rated hardware

  • take ownership over design projects

  • undertake funding and sponsorship campaigns

  • make connections with industry partners and faculty members

Sign up for information regarding general meetings and events. These are open to anyone who's interested!


General Meetings are from 7pm-8pm PST in ELL 160 at UVic
