<nodisp> Our student driven Megaproject - AAUSAT - goes back to 2001.
By the way this homepage is also build and maintained by AAUSAT students
The very beginning was 100% intiated by students at Dep of Electronic Systems(ES), Aalborg University. At the department significant subsystems of Ørsted(launched 1999) the first 100% danish science satellite was designed and constructed.
The ES students found these activities very interesting so around 2000 the kindly requested if ES could find interest in running a Eletronic/Space Engineer education.
The students proposed or demanded that a educational track in space should be.
