Course Aim
To give students the experience of participating in a balloon/rocket project. To make it possible for students to work in their preferred area of space engineering or space science at an early stage in the education.

Project performed in a smaller group of students. Project management, planning and definition; contacts with industrial and academic organisations; applications for funding; literature studies; acquisition of equipment; logistics. The target is a project chosen to suit the interest of the students. Examples projects: The stratospheric balloon project EXUS/BEXUS or the satellite receiving system at campus Kiruna. A project may be an experimental work combined with investigation of an engineering task. During the course a preliminarye study is made, you go through the stages of a PDR, a CDR. The duration of the project is typically 1 quarter and is performed at our campus. Typically it is part of a groups P7001R project.

Group supervision.

• Review meetings • Quality of the project work and documentation • Meeting deadlines and timetable • Quality of the product that meets the requirements • The quality of the final report with a technically sound analysis of any problems or failures.

This couse corresponds to the first part of P7001R.
