Who are we?

We are the University of Manitoba Space Applications and Technology Society (UMSATS), and we are one of the largest multi-disciplinary student groups at the University of Manitoba. Our membership consists of more than 100 undergraduate and graduate students from many faculties including Engineering, Physics, Business, Science, Education and Kinesiology. Our vision is to design, build, and launch the first student-built satellite and rocket from the University of Manitoba.


The Cubesat team competes in the Canadian Satellite Design Challenge (CSDC), a 2 year long competition organized by Geocentrix Technologies Ltd, against several other high ranking universities across Canada. The objective of this competition is to perform environmental testing on student-built Canadian 3U cubesats. The Cubesat project allows students from all experience levels to unite in order to further their knowledge in almost all disciplines.




Rocketry competes internationally against ivy league schools annually. The competition goal is to propel a student built rocket thousands of feet to a suborbital distance from earth. UMSATS Rocketry gives students the opportunity to have hands on experience with cutting edge space travel technologies.
