Work in a real space project for two semesters and earn academic credits.
Interesting positions open for 2022
Watch this video: MIST- the Learning Experience
The MIST project is now in its functional testing phase on the lab bench and the plan is to integrate the satellite next year and proceed to environmental tests on the integrated satellite with the goal of finishing them at the end of 2022.
This project phase is such that 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:
- Satellite mechanical integration, mechanical test planning and execution
- Thermal analysis and thermal test planning and execution.
- Design and production of equipment to support integrated satellite tests.
- Attitude control analysis and simulations.
- Functional testing and flight simulations.
- On-board software: Verification of this student-developed subsystem during flight simulations and development of updates and bug fixes.
- Ground station:
- Use of the station in satellite ground tests
- Mission planning.
- Preparing the NanoProp propulsion system for flight and make plans for its use.
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 2021 semester.
For more info e-mail the project manager Sven Grahn (firstname.lastname@example.org). Apply to email@example.com no later than Sunday, 17 October, 2021. Your application shall not exceed 500 words plus a one-page CV. Please indicate your primary and secondary task preferences.
- Please read this document before applying to the project to learn which project courses are available for participating in MIST and who to contact to find out how to fit the MIST project work into your study programme.
- Here is a short description of the project.
- Here is an extensive description of the project.
- Here is a short, and very general, course syllabus that you may find useful when discussing MIST with your program director (programansvarig), track coordinator (spåransvarig), or study counsellor (studievägledare).
Students will be selected in the first half of 10 November, 2021 and they will start their work in the project on Tuesday, 18 January 2022.
