    The Michigan Tech Aerospace Enterprise is a collection of research, development, and educational laboratories dedicated to advancing U.S. Space Technology. Doctoral research students build and test plasma thrusters that are used to propel satellites as large as a school bus and as small as a smartphone. Undergraduate design, build, and fly small satellites in collaboration with agencies such as NASA and the Department of Defense. Faculty experts push the limits of what is possible to solve problems and engineering challenges for government and industry customers.

    The Aerospace Enterprise accepts members of all majors, and no prior experience is required. Please note that the number of open positions varies from semester to semester and is dependent on current enrollment. Please see below for application instructions.


    1) Educate the Future Leaders of the Aerospace Industry by providing undergraduate students hands-on Space Systems Engineering project experience through the design, test, and integration of spacecraft.

    2) Advance U.S. Space Technology by solving real-world, challenging problems. The satellites we build aren’t just science projects. They are real satellites, with real missions, and are directly relevant to current U.S Military and NASA strategic goals and needs.

    Application Process

    Before applying for the Aerospace Enterprise, please attend one of the Information Sessions shown above. Once you have attended one of the sessions, the application process begins by going to our website and filling out the application form.
