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.
