Up in Space

Female student
Cal Poly students are currently preparing three mini satellites – or CubeSats – to be launched into space. Here, Brigitte Petersen, an aerospace engineering student who is the project manager for two of the CubeSat projects, shows one of the mini satellites on a workbench inside the PolySat lab. The two CubeSats she is working on will address eliminating space debris while also measuring radiation in deeper space. So far ten CubeSats built at Cal Poly have been launched into space.

The Cal Poly College of Engineering understands there has been an enormous amount of turmoil and transition due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). As we continue offering support to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends, we also continue providing critical updates as well as college highlights. Ours is a college full of creative and bright engineers and staff. For more information on COVID-19 visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
