Fall Research Opportunities in the Space Systems Design Studio

Ever wanted to build a spacecraft?

Space Systems Design Studio is a research lab at Cornell University that seeks to push the boundaries of spacecraft capabilities through novel applications of modern physics and innovative design. We are currently engaged in several flight projects to demonstrate concepts, provide research testbeds, and enhance the state of spaceflight technology. Graduates from our lab have interned, worked, and risen to senior management roles at places like NASA, SpaceX, Northrop Grumman, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Blue Origin, Planet Labs, Apple, Facebook, Google and many more!

All of our projects are recruiting for Fall 2021. This includes both CubeSat teams and spacecraft technology research led by graduate students. We are looking for new members with all levels of experience who want to work on a fast-paced team developing cutting edge technology. We are seeking students in ECE, CS, AEP, and MAE, and more.

Applications are considered on a rolling basis until the course enrollment deadline, but please apply early! Many projects in the lab are looking to finalize recruitment as soon as possible.
