What this opportunity is about
FSGC’s FUNSAT design competition enables an unlimited amount of student teams to conduct trade and design studies in a new and exciting realm of engineering design. This project allows for the combination of students from different science and engineering fields to work together in interdisciplinary teams to complete a task that will benefit not only the student’s future career but provide an avenue for students to bring the knowledge they have acquired in the classroom and apply it to an actual system design project. Scientific knowledge, hands-on educational experience, and publicity for the students and their schools will be derived from this competition. But more than anything it will allow the student engineers to conduct a design project on a satellite that can be launched into space, while they are still in school, forever putting their fingerprint on the cosmos.
