Two teams from the Department of Electrical Engineering at Yazd University took the first and fifth places in the eighth national and the second international Iranian CanSat competitions. 

CanSat are satellites that are made in the size of a soda can, and their difference with the space mission is that a satellite does its job in space; however, a CanSat is lifted by a drone from a height of 300 to 350 meters above the ground surface and then released to accomplish a predetermined mission. The CanSat competition offers the students an opportunity to work on a small-scale space project. According to Aerospace Research Institute in Iran, the aim of such a competition is to spark the students’ scientific enthusiasm so that they could develop novel ideas. Furthermore, it provides the means for training experts and experienced students.
