Mechanical

Electronics and Control

 

Mechanical

The mechanical group is responsible for designing, building and testing the actual hardware of the rocket. You'll be working with modelling, analysis, production, and testing. All members will be given a intro level course for the necessary tools and technologies (CAD, FEM, Production, so on).
The group fits perfectly for anyone who is studying or has competence within mechanical engineering, civil engineering, physics & mathematics, fluid dynamics, material engineering, aerospace engineering, or similar fields.

Expected workload is 15-20 hours per week.

Structure

Use the arrows to view other systems

The structure systems group develops, designs, and produce all the aerodynamic components and mechanical architecture that connects all systems. This includes the fins, nosecone, boat tail, fuselage, motor mount, cubesat mount, avionics mount, coupling interface and more.

The group is split into two subteams: inner and outer. The outer team designs and develops the aerodynamic surfaces and flight dynamics, while the inner team designs and develops the mechanical structure that transfers all the forces that the rocket experiences. Please note which subteam you want to be on in your application.

Responsibilities: 

  • Simulate and improve rocket trajectory and flight dynamics

  • Use CAD software to design parts and systems

  • Use advanced FEM analysis to inform design decisions

  • Use CFD to inform design decisions

  • Develop and build rapid prototypes to prove design concepts

  • Develop composite production techniques

  • Develop suitable mechanical interfaces and mounting points for the other systems 

  • Production and validation of parts

  • Test and document designs and solutions

Although we encourage people with some prior experience to apply, it is important to note that no prior experience is needed to apply.

Electronics and control

The Electronics & Control group designs and develops all of sensor systems, power systems, control algorithms, communications systems and computers on board the rocket. All members will receive intro level courses in necessary fields, and will gain access to unique faculties for production and testing through our sponsors. The group is perfect for anyone who is studying or has competence within electrical engineering, computer science, control engineering, robotics, physics & mathematics, mechatronics, communication technology, or similar.

A workload of 15-20 hours a week is expected.
