The Queen's Space Engineering Team is a group of 60 exceptional and passionate students who share the desire to explore and compete in the world of space science and technology. Created in 2006, QSET has built stand-alone, off the grid, mobile platform rovers, and a rocket payload which were all used to compete in various international space competitions (NASA Lunabotics Competition, International CanSat Competition, University Rover Challenge, European Rover Challenge).


QSET has just recently competed in the University Rover Challenge in Utah, USA. QSET placed 1st in Canada, 2nd in North America, and 6th best worldwide out of 63 other international teams! In the upcoming season, the team intends to compete in the European Rover Challenge, and also design a satellite to be competition ready by 2017.
It's fair to say that QSET has come a long way! You can check out the video to the left to get a taste of what QSET projects look like!


QSET provides both hands-on experience and educational value in a variety of ways.
