Steve Greenland Avionics and Aerospace Systems Engineer
"If you can build it, we'll launch it..." That was the challenge posed by the UK Space Agency to Steve Greenland and the team at Clyde Space Ltd.
Steve explains, “It’s the pioneer spirit that engineers have to push the boundaries of what is possible. You have to just focus on something that you believe in passionately. And go for it…”
Steve Greenland studied Avionics and Aerospace Systems Engineering at Cranfield University and the University of Tokyo. He joined the University of Strathclyde and worked for Clyde Space Ltd to conceive, design and build the UK’s first cube satellite.
