BIRDS Project.

My Name is: Reuben Jikeme Umunna
My Country is: Nigeria
My Major is: Mechanical and Control Engineering

My role is to support the assembly, integration and testing of BIRDS at the system engineering level.

I hold a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering, and a Masters in Aerospace Engineering from University of Benin, Nigeria and University of Salford, England respectively. I have been previously involved in two micro satellite missions, where part of my tasks included component level and qualification tests, propulsion system assembly, integration and testing. I hope to bring my experience and also learn from the contrasting underlying principles in the testing of different satellite classes.
