UPC Space Program is a group of students from Polytechnic University of Catalonia mainly from ESEIAAT, with the main goal of developing new technologies in the aerospace field. UPC Space Program was born because of the motivation of the students to put in practice what they have learn in classes, and the passion about space, aircraft, and everything surrounding the aerospace world. The University provides a lot of knowledge, but theoretical content the majority of it. UPC Space Program is now a big community that want people who would love to share their knowledge, learn from the others, prove themselves, test their engineering skills and get closer to the business atmosphere.
UPC Space Program work in four different areas of the aeronautic world, UAV, robotics, HAB (high altitude ballooning) and Rocketry. In each of those fields we create missions, short-term projects that allow students to define and accomplish real goals.
UPC Space Program is working on an incredible project called TGS (Terrassa Ground Station), with the aim of creating an amazing laboratory which allows the students to track satellites and keep a bidirectional communication between them. This amazing project has already managed to have a bidirectional communication with one satellite.
Now if you would like to know more about our missions, about what we do. You can take a look to our missions site on our webpage and if you want more get in touch with us, we would love to hear about you.
