program description of CLTP11

Mark Angelo Cabrera Purio

Class of CLTP11

Present status: Ph.D. in Space Systems Engineering (Candidate)
Present position: Assistant Professor, Electronics Engineering Department, Adamson University
Field of specialization: Electronics and Communications Engineering
Research Interests: Remote Sensing, GIS, Space Engineering, Electronic Circuit Design

Statement of Purpose

Aligned with the aim of the Philippines to build capacity through practical training and being immersed in actual satellite development, I am fortunate to be one of the Filipinos that will pioneer the proliferation of space and space technology in my country after finishing Ph.D. in Space Systems Engineering in Kyutech this year. The Cansat Leader Training Program (CLTP) will be a great avenue for me to not only enhance the skills I acquired in building satellites but also to transfer this knowledge to students who would like to pursue a career in space. With the support from my university and through its partnership with UNISEC PH and other institutions, I believe that we can be more efficient in teaching if we are equipped with learning materials and tools which I believe we can learn from CLTP. While it will be helpful to make use of the materials from CLTP to teach space systems engineering, teaching this to Filipino students will also allow us to give feedback about the contents of the materials for future improvement.

Feedback from CLTP11

The CLTP11 is both engaging and packed with learnings. Despite my CubeSat development experience, being immersed in this program allowed me to understand the various aspects of systems engineering through the HeptaSat Training platform. While the activities are compressed within a two-week period to learn all the subsystems, propose, and conceptualize missions and even teach non-space professionals, I have learned not only technical skills but also soft skills in this training. I am also fortunate to be working with multicultural and multidisciplinary individuals coming from different parts of the world and at the same time being taught by professors and tutors who are experts in the field, so it made the experience extra special.

Vision for your future

Just like in my statement of purpose, I plan to go back to my country and start teaching at the university again. I also envision encouraging the younger generation to pursue a career related to STEM or better yet in space in the future. I will take home the experiences I had in various satellite projects and what I learned from the CLTP 11 to help support the proliferation of knowledge in the Philippines. Soon, together with my fellow Filipino alumni, we would like to hold the same workshop so that more students will appreciate satellite development and the joy of building CubeSats.

Message for the potential CLTP participants

To the potential CLTP Participants, I wish you all the best, and may you forever trust the process. Make the most out of your experience during the CLTP by expanding your network and gaining friends, building new skills and technical knowledge, and honing your soft skills. If you have an interest in space and building satellites, this could be a great stepping block to jumpstart and stir your curiosity.
