Emma Nicolai, a 2nd-year student in Aerospace Engineering and a core member of the Queen Mary Centre for Undergraduate Research (QMCUR), has received approval to establish the Queen Mary Students for Exploration and Development in Space (QMSEDS) society. QMSEDS proudly serves as Queen Mary's dedicated branch within the UK Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (UKSEDS), the national student space initiative.

As a society, QMSEDS aims to enhance Queen Mary's presence on the national stage by participating in events such as the Satellite Design Competition and the Olympus Rover Trail. Additionally, QMSEDS supports its members' engagement in the space community by attending conferences and workshops.

"In the coming years, I hope QMSEDS continues to expand, participating in a range of competitions and evolving into a hub for wonderful and ambitious minds. I see it bringing Queen Mary forward as a leading institution in the space field," says founder, Emma Nicolai.

QMSEDS provides a significant opportunity for Queen Mary to be recognized as a key player in the field of space exploration on a national level. By participating in these initiatives, QMSEDS intends to showcase the exceptional skills and talents that define Queen Mary University and its students.

QMCUR is particularly proud of her achievement and will support the activities of the society along the way.

QMSEDS is proudly sponsored by ACCU who generously supports our competitions.

You can contact the society on the QMUL website and keep up with its activity on Instagram.
