Space Engineering (Dormant)

Note: The space engineering research group is currently dormant due to a lack of available research funding.

The Space Engineering research group conducts research on the design, manufacture, and testing of space hardware and systems. Due to the arduous nature of conditions during launch and in space, and the high reliability and restrictive mass requirements for launcher and satellite hardware, there are significant engineering challenges associated with these activities. Other research interests include the implementation of AS9100 quality management systems in the space industry, and the application of new and novel manufacturing processes within the space industry.
