MEng Projects


ESMO - European Student Moon Orbiter

Universities from more than 15 countries are participating to construct the first student-built satellites in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA). Currently teams of MEng students from Warwick are working on design proposals for the European Student Moon Orbiter (ESMO), a student-built satellite to be launched in 2011. The subsystem that Warwick is responsible for is the Electronics Power Systems (EPS) and is actively supported by members of staff from PEATER.
