Abstract

With the role of concurrent engineering (CE) becoming more important to the success of companies, it is vital that engineering students are able to understand and apply this concept. In this regard, the University of Strathclyde regularly offers its students opportunities to learn about this process through practical-based CE workshops. The results from a student-based CE study of a CubeSat are therefore outlined, including the effectiveness of the session as a learning experience for students. Through collaboration and teamwork, the student team produced a feasible design concept which achieved most of the prespecified objectives. Additionally, it was determined that the learning outcomes of the study were widely met, despite it taking place virtually due to COVID-19.
