Welcome to UKSEDS Competitions 2022-23

Welcome to UKSEDS Competitions! Our competitions aim to promote the space industry as a career path for students and help them develop key industry-relevant skills. We run five competitions focused on rocketry, rover design, satellite design and in-orbit servicing & manufacturing. Read more about our competitions below.

Registration for the 2022-23 ORT, SDC, and NRC competitions has now closed. However you can still apply for the Mach-23 and IOSM competitions until the 11th of November. 

If you wish to sign up for a competition but you don’t have a team, we will try and pair you with a team in need so still sign up! However please be aware that this is dependent on availability and the number of applications we receive. Although we will provide support throughout the competition, we will not be able to facilitate in-person meetings and transport to/from these meetings for those in multi-university teams.

Here you will find the 2022-23 Competitions Brochure, which contains all you need to know about the Competitions! If you have any questions or issues, please contact [email protected].

On the 12th of October UKSEDS Competitions ran an online Q&A! If you weren’t able to make the Q&A session, below we have linked the presentation and session recording.

That is not all.
