CubeSat Onboard Computer Design

Over the past year and a half, I have been working on the SFU Satellite Design Team as the computing subsystem lead. The team and I have been developing a low-cost, reliable, custom onboard computer (OBC) to meet the current and future mission requirements. This post features quite a few details about the project.   […]

CubeSat Computing Boards

At the SFU Satellite Design Team, we’re building a CubeSat from scratch. One of my main roles is designing the onboard computer hardware, as well as developing a lot of the onboard software. This post is a brief overview of the two boards that I designed and the team have assembled thus far. Both of […]

5 Things to Learn Before Starting Engineering School

Engineering school is an interesting place. Relative to high school, everyone’s really smart. How are new students supposed to stand out in an environment made up of all-stars? By getting a head start on the rest of the class in a few critical skills, you’ll set yourself up for success in one of the hardest […]

I’ve found online teachers much more informative and concise, and therefore more efficient than my schools’ instructors. That’s not to say that I don’t go to class, but for homework and studying, online learning is […]
