Our second meetup had a focus on current students and alumni students of University of Canterbury.

  • David Wright, former student at University of Canterbury, had a talk entitled “CubeSats 101” where he gave an excellent overview of CubeSats and his commercial experience building them.
  • Philipp Sueltrop, Doctoral Student at University of Canterbury, is originally from Germany and he discussed what attracted him to study in Christchurch and how we have a different, swift technology development approach.
  • Matthew Fukert, Founder of University of Canterbury Student Rocketry & Propulsion Club, gave an overview of the club’s activities and the upcoming competition they’re attending in Australia.
