Univ. of the PH to Train New Batch Of Satellite Builders In Nanosatellite Engineering


The University of the Philippines (UP) is leading the way as it has sets its eyes in training the second batch of Filipino satellite builders through its Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute (EEEI).

The training will be under the Space Science Proliferation through University Partnerships (STeP-UP Program), “at the core of which is the UP EEEI’s Masters in Engineering program,” UP said.

“The STeP-UP Scholarship is a component of the STAMINA4Space program, which aims to build a healthy and vibrant space infrastructure in the country,” UP said.

“With the help of UP’s partner, the Kyushu Institute of Technology (KyuTech), the first batch of STeP-UP scholars was trained in the first ever Master’s in Engineering in Electrical Engineering program, with a special focus on nanosatellite engineering, at the UP Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute (EEEI). The pioneering class used the knowledge they gained to create the first locally built nano- or cube satellites, Maya 3 and 4,” it noted.

Maya 3 and 4 are planned to be handed over to Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) for launching in February 2021.

“While barely being over a kilogram in mass each, the satellites can contribute considerably to the country’s economic, territorial, and disaster risk reduction efforts,” UP said.

The second batch of STeP-UP scholars will be working on Maya 5 and Maya 6.
