This paper focuses on a) to reflect on an approach, decisions and subsequent knowledge with regard to non response and b) to discuss the "attrition survey", rather than discussing the actual results of an overall longitudinal study. This should be linked to the paper "student experiences of enterprise education"
16.851 Satellite Engineering (MIT)
Satellite Engineering introduces students to subsystem design in engineering spacecraft. The course presents characteristic subsystems, such as power, structure, communication and control, and analyzes the engineering trades necessary to integrate subsystems successfully into a satellite. Discussions of spacecraft operating environment and orbital mechanics help students to understand the functional requirements and key design parameters for satellite systems.
This report outlines the process and findings from an innovative project for students. This work was part of the curriculum and involved students working with West Yorkshire Police as part of the safer Leeds project in designing and making a film for students n crime prevention and personal safety in Leeds
