“Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out.” – John Wooden
Infinity Space Club is the only Astronautical society of the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun whose foundation dates back to 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Ugur Guven and our faculty advisor Asst. Prof. Zozimus D. Labana.
At Infinity Space Club, we are a cluster of the most curious minds of space enthusiasts with the sole aim of enlightening and providing an early access to the knowledge of the Aerospace domain.
With the support of the Department of Aerospace Engineering, UPES, our partners, collaborators and sponsors, we deliver a much-needed exposure to the students by organizing technical and fun events throughout the year including competitions, guest lectures, workshops, observation nights and our annual space convention, ‘Renaissance’.
We are honored to have collaborated with distinguished and notable organizations like SGAC and USERC. SGAC is a global non-governmental, non-profit organization and network whose purpose is to be an embodiment for university students and young space professionals for the United Nations, space agencies, industry, and academia expanded to more than 15,000 members from over 150 countries. And USERC, Uttarakhand Science Education & Research Centre, has a vision to promote advancement of Science Education and Research in Uttarakhand State in collaboration with various National and International Institutes, and Organizations.
The National Space Convention is the crown jewel of our club. Renaissance is an enthralling opportunity for young minds to participate in and gain an experience of a lifetime which will boost their interest in this field. It has been conducted twice, in 2018 and in 2020 and has managed to garner praise from national as well as local media. Dr. Tessy Thomas, Director General, Aeronautical Systems, DRDO, also known as, ‘The Missile Woman of India’ was the honorable chief guest in the most recent edition of Renaissance held in 2020.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. Besides, human have been gifted not only with the ability to learn but also with the ability to think. Reinforcing that fact, Infinity Space Club, under the Department of Aerospace Engineering presents the National Space Convention – Renaissance 2020.
National Space Convention is the annual space convention of INFINITY, the Astronautical Space Club of UPES, Dehradun. It aims to usher the budding professionals by opening the portals of the young minds in a plethora of technical and non-technical events, workshops, guest lectures and observation nights because it’s all about the talents just waiting to be tapped!
This year’s theme, Space Exploration – Discovery and Exploration of celestial structures in outer space by means of evolving and developing space technology – is one of the hardest topics till date to be researched on which in turn has its own beauty and enigma!
