Kyushu Institute of Technology
Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech) is a Japanese national university founded in 1909. The university is located in the city of Kitakyushu. Kitakyushu is known as the birthplace of Japanese modern industry. Over the past 20 years, Kyutech has offered courses in space engineering at undergraduate and graduate levels. In 2004, Kyutech established the Laboratory of Spacecraft Environment Interaction Engineering (LaSEINE) as a special research centre dedicated to studies on spacecraft charging, spacecraft material degradation, and hypervelocity impact. In 2010, a new research division, the Centre for Nanosatellite Testing (CeNT) was added to LaSEINE. CeNT provides all the environmental tests necessary for a nano-satellite with size up to 50cm x 50cm x 50cm and weight up to 50kg. In May 2012, HORYU-II, a nano-satellite built by Kyutech students, was launched to low-earth orbit and operated successfully.
