DESIGN. BUILD. LAUNCH.

WELCOME TO THE CANADA-WIDE UNIVERSITY COMPETITION

The Canadian Satellite Design Challenge is a Canada-wide competition for teams of university students (undergraduate and graduate) to design and build a small satellite. The satellites will undergo full launch and space environmental qualification testing, with the goal of launching the winning satellite into orbit in order to conduct scientific research.

The CSDC is an innovative and academically-challenging initiative which will advance space education in Canada, inspire students to pursue science and engineering educations and careers, and prepare tomorrow’s leaders with the interdisciplinary teamwork skills which are necessary for success.

PARTICIPATING TEAMS

Unlike many university competitions which are focused on only one department, successful teams in the CSDC are comprised of students from many disciplines – not just from Engineering (Mechanical, Electrical, and Computer), but Science (Computer Science, and the department of any science instruments which are flown), and usually benefit by having students from Management, Commerce, or Education departments.
