KSat e. V. (small satellite student society at the University of Stuttgart) is a non-profit organization founded in the spring of 2014. The more than 60 members are students of all semesters, mostly enrolled in aerospace engineering. The association is open to students of all disciplines.
Our goal is to give our members the opportunity to realize their own spaceflight project during their time at university. Furthermore, we aim to pass on the knowledge and enthusiasm for space travel as part of our public relations work and to provide a communication platform between students, interested companies of the industry, research and the public.
KSat e. V. was founded by former SSETI students and therefore has a history of small satellite construction dating back to 2005. With MIRKA2-RX our members were able to accomplish their first successful mission 2 years after the foundation.
Beyond the engineering work, we are always prepared to enjoy a pleasant barbecue in summer as well as the obligatory Christmas party.
New members are always welcome!
