Development of a Small Radio Telescope at the Technical University of Cartagena: A duty with our students and society
An initiative carried out at the Technical University of
Cartagena (UPCT, Spain) to encourage students and promote the interest for Scientific and Engineering Culture between society is presented in this contribution. For this purpose, a medium-term (4 years) project based on the design, fabrication, testing and setup of a small Radio Telescope system has been carried out. The main novelty is that this project is entirely being done by students of last courses of our Telecommunication Engineering Faculty, under the supervision of four lecturers.
