Lectures cover a range of technical and non-technical subjects related to the space industry. The SSP also includes a departmental activity, several elective workshops and a team project.

    Team Project: Entrepreneurial and Innovation Ecosystem for Space—A Handbook on How to Start Your Own Space Company

    I worked as part of a multinational team of 28 people from 14 countries to produce a handbook and web tool to help entrepreneurs new to the space industry. I led the delivery of the literature review, in which we secured full marks. I contributed content to the Executive Summary and Final Report (handbook), and to the design of our mission patch.

    2011-2016: MEng Space Systems Engineering, University of Southampton, 2:1 with honours.

    An aerospace engineering programme focussing on spacecraft design at the systems level. Modules cover mathematics, computer languages, spacecraft design, propulsion, aerothermodynamics and orbital mechanics. My final year optional modules include Advanced Computational Methods, Hypersonic and High Temperature Gas Dynamics, and Advanced Partial Differential Equations.

    Several Phase A-style group spacecraft design studies in 2nd and 3rd year culminating in Preliminary Design Reviews, including a multinational interdisciplinary exercise based at Universidad De La Laguna, Tenerife, working with physics and astronomy students.

    3rd year Dissertation “Should the UK invest in human spaceflight and, if so, how?”, a 10,000-word report and poster presentation in which I:

    Examined the history of UK involvement in space

    Reviewed those UK nationals who have flown into space and how they did so

    Compared the range of launch vehicles currently available and under development

    Made recommendations that the government increase investment, open up to opportunities in the private sector, and remain alert to unexpected opportunities.

    I also analysed workload using Gantt charts and managed workload to spread the load more evenly.

    4th year Group Design Project: University of Southampton Lunar Hopper. Working in a small multinational team from the US, Ireland and Romania to ‘ruggedize’ the hopper, correcting design flaws in the previous year’s design of the vehicle. I also developed a pilot training simulator and managed health and safety.

    Engineering Foundation Year, University of Southampton. Covered A-level maths, engineering and physics.

    Prior education:

    GCSEs at C and above in Science, Maths, IT and Geography from Chilton Trinity School, Bridgwater. Advanced GNVQ in Science from Bridgwater College, Bridgwater.

    In 2008-09 I attempted to study for a Level 3 Certificate in Management. I was unable to complete due to a family bereavement but gained a good awareness of management issues.

     

    Other interests and activities:

    I was a member of the British Interplanetary Society, the Royal Aeronautical Society and UKSEDS for several years. I have also attended the UK Space Conference and other industry events over recent years. I was also an active member of University of Southampton’s surfing and skydiving clubs.
