The goal of Mitchell Community College’s aerospace engineering and technology team is to educate and prepare students for careers based in science, technology, engineering, or math related occupations. Through contextual hands-on research and development activities, individuals will develop skills leading to improved opportunities for success in the workforce.


Our mission is to successfully design a gravity gradient boom and deployment system that will passively deploy at apogee; while concurrently relaying signals/images to and from the payload through the use of short wave communications.
