Chandigarh University launches North India’s first Satellite Designing Program

Chandigarh University has launched Student Satellite Designing and Training program ‘CUSAT’ and it has turn into North India’s first University to launch the superior coaching program for the scholars within the subject of Aerospace Engineering.

The digital inauguration session of CUSAT was held right this moment which was attended by distinguished Aerospace Engineering Scientists and Professionals which included Padma Shri Dr YS Rajan, Scientist and Honorary Professor, ISRO; Padmashri Prof. R.M.Vasagam, Veteran Space Scientist and ISRO’s former Director, Geostationary Satellite Apple’s Project Director; Padma Shri Dr Mylswamy Annadurai, Program Director of Chandrayaan-1 & Mangalyaan, also called Moon Man of India.

While giving particulars concerning the newly launched satellite tv for pc designing program for the scholars, Chancellor Chandigarh University, Satnam Singh Sandhu mentioned, “The first-of-its-kind training program in Satellite Designing and Testing would have a duration of 4-months and it would be open for the students of Computer Science Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Mechatronics, Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Geo-Informatics.”

The coaching program would come with examine of Satellite Designing, Integration of Components, Testing and Simulation of launch course of, assortment & evaluation of information from the satellite tv for pc. “The students would undergo training under the guidance of former Indian and International Space Scientists including scientists from ISRO,” added Sandhu. Chandigarh University has deliberate to design and launch a multipurpose Nano-satellite inside a interval of 10-12 months which might be launched in area by ISRO.

While giving his inaugural handle Dr YS Rajan mentioned, “Scientists from North India like Kalpana Chawla, Dr Satish Dhawan have made big time contribution in the field of Space Technology and Exploration and therefore it is important to educate the young & budding engineers from this part of India about the rich legacy that they have in this field.” Dr Rajan added, “It is not important that you design the whole satellite or mission. Designing and assembly of a small component plays an equal and important role in the success of a Space Mission. The first-of-its-kind training program introduced by Chandigarh University will play an important foundation in taking the interest of students of North India especially from Punjab towards the rewarding career in the field of Space Technology.”

While giving the keynote handle, Dr Mylswamy Annadurai also called Moon Man of India mentioned, “Russia and USA have maintained a lead for the past many decades in space exploration and space research and although India entered into the field much later yet India has carved out a special identity for itself in the International space program”. He additional added, “The success of Chandrayan 1 and Mangalyaan missions have significantly positioned India amongst the top countries that have a great success rate in launching satellites and carried out experimental projects. The foundation of Indian space is so strong which can be verified by the fact that many missions of Russia and other nations took 5 or 6 attempts, but India has been successful in just one attempt in the Mangalyaan mission without any International help.” The success of Indian Space Research Program and ISRO has additionally opened new financial alternatives that may considerably contribute within the GDP of the nation, added Dr Annadurai.

India has already helped nations like U.A.E, Singapore, Thailand, France, Spain, and others nations to launch their satellite tv for pc which is able to assist them in communication, navigation, and in different applications additionally.

“The training of young students should focus on apprising them with the real time problems that can be solved with the help of space technology. Satellite to be designed by Chandigarh University should focus on providing and collecting data which can be useful to tackle problems like Floods, Landslides, Draught Situation, and Underground Water Conservation. Addressing such real time situation through scientific approach should be the main objective of the satellite designing and training program launched by Chandigarh University,” mentioned veteran area scientist, Prof R.M.Vasagam.

“Chandigarh University has always focused on providing real-time industry exposure for its students where they can attain hands-on practical experience under the guidance of industry experts,” mentioned Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chancellor, Chandigarh University. He additional mentioned, “Chandigarh University would be spending 1 crore for designing of Nano-satellite for which the training of students has already began. The establishment of ground control station for the satellite project is already underway and we are sure to design and launch our own multipurpose satellite within a time frame of 10-12 months.”
