Galaxy of achievements in space exploration

Engineering students, alumni, professors, are leaders in space exploration


Garry Lindberg (UAlberta Engineering Physics ’60, DSc [Hon] ’12) managed the first Canadarm project in 1974, just one example of UAlberta Engineering alumni, faculty, and students making a difference in the space industry.


From inventing the heat shields used to protect astronauts during the Apollo moon missions, to leading the design of Canadarm, building instruments for the Phoenix Mars rover, and designing, building and launching Alberta's first satellite, U of A engineering alumni, professors and students have made important contributions to space exploration. It's a record to be proud of.

Our next small steps will contribute to more giant leaps. Take your time to browse through our collection of achievements in exploring the final frontier.
