    Cover Letter

    I am a young space professional currently searching for a challenging opportunity in Space industry position.

    I had a telecommunications background in college, after which became interested in satellites communications which led me to do a Msc in Aerospace in Barcelona Tech -UPC where I was involved also in a Cubesat project mission. After that, this last year I have participated in a one year satellite's design training in China CAST.

    Over these past 3 years I have learned about the fundamentals of aerospace technologies, and in the last year specially I have learned to work in a multidisciplinary environment where I was required to perform as part of the management board as a chief engineer in a virtual DFH4 satellite design at a PDR level. This last year experience  has strengthened my leadership, teamwork, problem-solving and decision-making abilities in space projects, working with a group of 30 people.

    So far I had the chance to gather a solid aerospace engineering knowledge base, I am a fast learner, team oriented worker, responsible, creative and I like to take initiatives.  

    I have a big passion about space technologies and I would now like to have an opportunity to get involve in industry and put in practice what I have learned.

    Please find attached my resume. I would appreciate the opportunity, any additional information you may require, I will immediately answer via email.
