About

Manchester Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (MANSEDS) is an academic student society at The University of Manchester, and was the recipient of the Student Union's Academic and Departmental Society Award 2018. We are also affiliated with UK Students for the Exploration of Space (UKSEDS) and the Institute of Physics (IoP).

MANSEDS was formed four 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 six ambitious student-led projects: CanSat, Lunar Rover, Mars Rover, Mancunian Balloonian, Rocketry and Hybrid Rocket Motor.

MANSEDS aims to provide a platform to discuss and explore ideas related to space and technology, with the goal of improving students’ skills in a variety of technical and non-technical fields. Over the past four years, the range of projects has expanded to cover everything from lunar rovers to rockets. This expansion has only been possible through the dedication of members and the support received from the university and various sponsors from MACE, UKSEDS and IOP, to name a few. We continue to thank the organisations and individuals who have supported us in our endeavours.

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.
