The MIST student satellite

Interesting positions open for the fall 2021

Watch this video: MIST- the Learning Experience


The MIST project is in a phase where two-semester student assignments provide the best learning opportunity for students and the quickest progress for the project. Students are offered to work for credits (usually 15 credits) on challenging tasks in the technical areas below:

  • System engineering
  • Mechanical integration and test
  • Thermal analysis and test
  • On-board software development and test
  • Functional testing and flight simulations
  • Attitude control
  • Ground station integration and test
  • Mission planning

C, C#, and Python coding skills are useful in “On-board software, “Attitude control” and “Functional testing”. “Hands-on” experience in electronics and mechanical work most welcome.

You can, if you wish, use your work for credits to define a later M.Sc. thesis in MIST.

You can get an impression of what student work on from these student presentations at the end of the spring 2020 semester.

For more info e-mail the project manager Sven Grahn (sveng@kth.se). Apply to rymdcenter@sci.kth.se no later than Tuesday, 4 April, 2021. Your application shall not exceed 500 words plus a one-page CV. Please indicate your primary and secondary task preferences.

Students will be selected around 1 May, 2021 and will start their work in the project on Monday 30 August 2021.
