About the Team:

UPC Space Program is a multidisciplinary group of engineering students from Terrassa, Spain with a shared passion for space & sciences. The vision of our team is to get students from our university acquainted with space robotics, put the knowledge acquired during our degrees to use, and share with them the skills and know-how acquired since the creation of the association. The current team was formed in 2019 reusing scraps from a student’s degree thesis in 2017 and with the years it grew bigger and more ambitious. Coming back from ERC2021 On-Site Edition having learned so much we are hungrier than ever for improvement and success.
