The 2nd Batch of STeP-UP Scholars completes the sandwich program under the Master of Science (MS) and Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electrical Engineering – nanosatellite engineering track of the UP Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute. This scholarship is an initiative of our Space Science and Technology Proliferation through University Partnerships (STeP-UP) Project and supported by the Science Education Institute – Department of Science and Technology.
The sandwich program in Japan includes satellite environmental test training, Maya-5 & 6 cube satellites’ final assembly, and flight model(FM) tests. Once the scholars are back in the Philippines, they will continue preparing the safety documents required for satellite launch acceptance.
