The Student Space Programs Laboratory (SSPL) at the Pennsylvania State University allows undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to design, fabricate, and integrate space systems. The SSPL provides hands-on projects to apply classroom knowledge to real world, interdisciplinary settings. SSPL students experience working through a complete design cycle and must develop a systems engineering mind-set in addition to their component-level experience.

Get Involved!

There are many opportunities for new students to get involved. The lab is searching for students from first-year through graduate students. Previous experience is not required; we have small projects and training programs that will bring you up to speed faster than you may think.
