Join Us

We’re always recruiting!

BLUEsat offers a unique opportunity to extend your learning in a hands-on environment across a multi-disciplinary team. Many of BLUEsat’s members are course tutors in a variety of different engineering schools. With them, you’ll gain real world experience, learn new skills from senior team members and have the opportunity to put your course work into practice!

Still not convinced? BLUEsat also offers international experience and overseas travel. The Off World Robotics team recently sent eight members to Poland to compete in the European Rover Challenge and the satellite team sent two representatives to Canada for the Canadian Satellite Design Challenge.

Who is eligible?

We welcome and can provide experience to all UNSW undergraduate students from all faculties and year levels. Our current members are from first year through to sixth year and are from a diverse range of backgrounds!

If you’re a UNSW student who is as passionate as us about satellites, robotics or ground station projects then we’d love to welcome you as part of our team. We also provide experience for our growing operations team involved in securing sponsorship and media outreach.

When do you meet?

BLUEsat meets every Saturday from 10:30am to 5pm at UNSW Sydney’s Kensington Campus (excluding UNSW Shutdown Period). This is when much of the society’s work gets done, and we also hold regular social events every few Saturday evenings.
