I think this project sounds a like a lot of fun - bringing together as it does a whole gamut of skills from autonomous control to rocket science with a very tangible goal. Independent problem solving is what we try to teach in our physics degree and it’s great to see students involved in extra curricular projects that build on that aspect of being a physicist.

ABOUT

Manchester Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (MANSEDS) is an academic student society at The University of Manchester. We are also affiliated with UK Students for the Exploration of Space (UKSEDS) and the Institute of Physics (IoP).

MANSEDS was formed three years ago as a single team to compete in the UKSEDS National Rocketry Competition. Since then we have grown to over 100 active members participating in our skill-based workshops and contributing to our five ambitious student-led projects: CanSat, lunar rover, Mancunian Balloonian, rocketry and hybrid rocket motor.

Outreach is another important part of what we do as a society. We attend events aimed at schoolchildren and provide them with demonstrations and hands-on activities that teach them about various areas of space and its exploration. We also run an annual trip to the UKSEDS National Student Space Conference to provide our members a chance to learn about the ever-growing space industry and network with industry professionals.

Committee

The committee is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), where any registered member of the Society is eligible to vote or stand as a candidate for up to two executive committee positions.
