A new 10-year student satellite program and international master's degree between Norway and Canada

CaNoSat is a 10-year student satellite program and international master's degree between Norway and Canada, which has arisen in the wake of a similar program for student rockets - CaNoRock.

The bilateral working group behind Canada-Norway Student Sounding Rocket (CaNoRock), officially opened in 2011, is now working on establishing a new program in the CaNoRock family - CaNoSat. This will complement the CaNoRock recruitment program, which with its two annual student rockets since 2009, has contributed to nearly 300 Norwegian and Canadian students at the Andøya Space Center for a week's rocket construction, as well as courses in physics, mechanics and electronics.
