Applications are now open for 7 teams including the newly formed Propulsion team! Later this year, we will be celebrating 5 years of JetX during which we have engaged over 100 engineering students and reached out to hundreds of pupils and enthusiasts from the aerospace, 3D printing and education communities.
The countdown has now begun for Kronos and X-Plorer 2 both due to be completed in 2020 and this presents a unique opportunity to existing and new member to follow those last stages of the projects. Whilst Glasgow-based students can apply to join the teams, Masters students in Sheffield can work on personal projects tied to the X-Plorer 1 EC, but applications will not be accepted online at this point. Interested applicants should reach out to ACSE for more details.
New for 2019-2020
This academic year also marks the start of another exciting collaboration and the establishment of our first undergraduate design team abroad. The newly formed Propulsion team at the University of New Hampshire in the US will be led by Matt Bowring and will focus on the complicated design of more efficient propulsion chamber. A performance issue with the existing chambers was identified last October and some testing in isolated assemblies as well as the X-Plorer 1 has been carried out over the past year.
Students from the University of New Hampshire may also apply online until the 13th of September. The deadline for UK applicants is the 27th of September and shortlisted candidates will be contacted a few days later. Follow the link below to access the applications page and find out more information on the teams and positions. Vacancies for some Glasgow-based teams are quite limited, so we'd advise interested applicants to apply as soon as possible! Good luck everyone!
