The aim of the society is to bring students into the world of space systems.

GU Orbit is the student-led CubeSat team at the University of Glasgow, which is comprised of 50+ students across all disciplines with the goal of designing, developing, and launching Scotland's first student-built nano-satellite. GU Orbit provides a gateway for students who are passionate about space and gives them an opportunity to learn about small satellite technology while getting hands-on experience in developing a CubeSat.
