This project has provided student the experience of focusing on a single technical design while also teaching the students to coordinate work between groups from various departments at other universities . It has motivated undergraduate students in the mechanical, electrical and computer engineering and computer science programs. Currently there are 42 students working directly on the cubesat project. It is expected that undergraduate students interested in pursuing a master’s degree will base their thesis on this project. The majority of students that have worked in CubeSat related projects in the past have been employed by companies such as: Texas Instruments Honewell, Infotech aerospace services, Florida Turbine, Lockeed Martin and NASA. Other students have continued their studies at a PhD level at institutions such as: Michigan State University, Ohio State University and University of Minnesota among other high ranking universities.
