The Queen's Space Engineering Team is a group of over 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, as well as 3U CubeSats which were all used to compete in various international space competitions (University Rover Challenge, European Rover Challenge, Canadian Satellite Design Challenge).


This past summer QSET competed in the University Rover Challenge in Utah, USA. QSET placed 2nd in Canada, 6th in North America, and 12th best worldwide out of 95 other international teams! The team also completed their first CubeSat for the Canadian Satellite Design Challenge and completed launch qualification testing. In the upcoming season, the team will be competing again in the University Rover Challenge and will be moving forward for the Canadian Satellite Design Challenge.
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.
