    During this project I was elected to the role of Systems Engineer for the study of a reusable Mars Ascent and Descent vehicle, undertaking this role I oversaw a team of 7 other students with respect to integration and supervision of the technical outputs of the work packages, and collation into technical reports that where presented to Industrial sponsors including Thales Alenia Space, Italian space agency and ALTEC.

    During the course of this project I have gained valuable experience through contact with tutors and experts from the industrial partners who were incredibly helpful in finding technical solutions and verifying models we produced.
