Our Members

Neil Armstrong didn’t get to the moon alone – he had a dedicated team to manage every aspect of Apollo 11. AlbertaSat is no different, so here is our stellar line-up.

AlbertaSat just keeps growing: every year we have new members joining. Now with over 100 active members, spreading out the thousands of hours required to create a satellite has never been more important. 

No previous experience or technical knowledge is required to join. We have students from many faculties – not just engineering and science – and are always looking to expand our team and bring people on board. Interested in joining? Fill out the google form at the link below!

Please note: we are a volunteer-based student project group.
