“Space and Satellite Engineering”

Edwin TAN

Office for Space Technology and Industry

Spacecraft are vital to the successful exploration in Space. They provide the means for humans to explore, and discover behaviour and sciences governing our Earth. Getting a spacecraft up in Space involves understanding, applying the scientific principals behind them and engineering them using ever-improving technologies. In this talk, an introduction to students about the science, technology, and engineering processes behind the design and development of a satellite leading to a successful mission is to be covered.


Mr Edwin Tan is a Senior Manager at the Office for Space Technology and Industry (OSTIn). Mr Tan graduated from Nanyang Technological University with a B.Eng (First Class Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and was awarded the Koh Boon Hwee Scholars Award and the Professional Engineers Board Gold Medal in 2013.
