A CubeSat, despite its reduced volume, is a complex system built around strongly interconnected disciplines. Basic knowledge of engineering, physics and math is required to be an active element of the CubebeSat Polito Team. In parallel to engineering skills, different backgrounds are welcome, especially in the Computer Science area.
Who can join the CubeSat Team?

You can join us by different kind of collaborations!
By developing your Bachelor Final Project
By developing your Master of Science Thesis
By a 6 CFU collaboration
By a free collaboration.
The CubeSat Team recruitment process for year 2021 start on the 26th of February with an on-line event. The recruitment is carried out through a multi-step selection:
CubeSat Polito Team Opening Event 2021. The CubeSat Team organizes a welcome event on February the 26th, for the students of PoliTO interested in joining the Team and previously registered at Registration Link . During the welcome event the team members will present the projects under development, explaining their activities and experiences within the team. The team Leader presents the recruitment process consisting of either two possible application procedures the candidate can follow. The first option is a classical submission. Basing on the public application form and on its personal portfolio, the candidate will be evaluated through a on-line interview by the end of the recruitment period. By following the second option, after having filled the public application form, the candidate can submit its own space mission proposal, as better detailed in the next point.
Students’ Project Proposal. This year the CubeSat Team opens with a Call for Ideas! The students interested in this kind of application submission will have the possibility to propose their own mission project to be selected for the development as part of the CubeSat Polito Team. The students will be asked to build their own working group for defining their project baseline, following a Statement of Work and Proposal Template document provided by the CubeSat Polito Team, that will serve as a submission guideline to the selection process.
Oral Interview. The interviw has a double objective. For the candidates following the fist application method (i.e. applicaton form + eventual portfolio), the interview will serve as the main evaluation parameter. For those following the second application method (i.e. application form + mission proposal), the interview will serve for the evaluation of the single project memebers and as a discussion on the proposed mission. If selected, the candidate becomes a Trainee in the CubeSat Team. During this period, the candidate is admitted to the training time slot required before becoming a full Member. The training period is variable but has been considered as approximately 1 month.
