Shelley Stephanie represented the department in the Space Challenges Bootcamp 2022 in Bulgaria

The program format is comprised of three main activities
Lectures by lead experts on Orbital Mechanics, Astrophysics,Space Application & Entrepreneurship ,Systems Architecture and Engineering,Propulsion technology etc.

The team also had intensive workshops and electronics and mechanics, programming, numerical methods,computer aided design and 3D printing, pitching workshops .

SUMMER SCHOOL AND STUDENT EXCHANGE

Relying on virtual participation only is questionable for a sustainable university cooperation aimed at integrating students: it is essential that personal and intercultural student exchange takes place beyond the actual project work, e.g. through socializing. Exchange is further sup- ported by 10 individual scholarships for an entire semester or a final thesis research period at HKA, UP or UoN over a period of three years up to 2025.

Cognitive Geomatics Project Launch

The "Cognitive Geomatics - digital teaching to raise awareness of intercultural differences in spatial awareness using the example of Germany, South Africa and Kenya" is a project as part of the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for students - BWS plus, a program of the Baden-Württemberg Foundation. The project will be financed over three years from

GEOSPATIAL ENGINEERING STUDENTS CARRYING OUT TOPOGRAPHICAL MAPPING USING UAV

The department of Geospatial and Space Technology ,University of Nairobi emblaces the new technology of mapping.This has exposed students to the rapidly growing technologies in the field of Geospatial .With a drone, surveyors can capture many more topographic data points, hence more accurate volume measurements.

Bsc Geospatial Engineering carrying out route survey of part of Kibwezi ,Kitui Road During Camp 2022

It can be done for a road that exists on the map as well as the ground, road existing on the map and not the ground and vice versa.The objective was Collection of data for route location survey using RTK.

These are what are needed to start the route location survey

GEOSPATIAL ENGINEERING STUDENT VISIT AT KENYA NAVY

The visit was aimed at familiarizing the students with industrial aspects of Hydrographic Survey, Satellite Techniques related to Geospatial Engineering and Nautical Charts.

During the visit, the 47 students attended a brief session at the Kenya Navy Maritime Operations Center where they were apprised by Major Stephen Ayonga on Hydrography in the Kenyan context with a bias of its role in the Blue Economy Agenda.

The students were then hosted onboard Kenya Navy Ship Jasiri and briefed on the mechanisms of Maritime Engineering before proceeding for a sea ride.

STATIC GNSS OBSERVATION DURING GEOSAPTIAL ENGINEERING CAMP 2022

Geospatial Engineering Camp is a mandatory exercise that the students undertaking Bsc Geospatial Engineering have to fulfill  before graduating.One of the task is the static GNSS obsevation for establishing control of the existing major Network consisting of atleast four points;Camp,DWA,KALUNGU,KILAWA and Mbusyani.

This exercise normally begins with a seminar which is conducted before sending the teams to the field.
