Mikolaj Podgorski

Mikolaj in company deals with broadly understood business (as COO), but also works on the ScanSAT project as a thermal and radiation engineer. A graduate of power engineering and mechanics and machine building. He organized and developed the largest student association on the Faculty.

 

He held a prestigious internship in USA, in the field of safety and simulation in nuclear sector. As part of his master’s thesis, he led the FREDE project, implemented under the REXUS/BEXUS program of the European Space Agency. The experiment, sent in the stratosphere aboard the balloon, aimed at investigating the process of the CFC decay when exposed to the UV radiation. The next natural step in space exploration was participation in a rocket experiment – the DREAM project, which was the first ever attempt to visually observe the drilling process in microgravity.

 

Professionally associated with energy sector from the end of his studies. Worked as an automation engineer and visited most of the power and CHP plants in Poland, implementing innovative control systems. Project manager with contracts worth millions of PLN.

 

In private, Mikolaj loves to travel, ski, snorkel and hike. In his free time he deepens his knowledge in the fields related to space, but also he won’t despise good fantasy or science fiction.

People

Scanway is made up of people who on their way repeatedly encountered problems by other considered to be impossible to overcome because of their complexity. However their passion, knowledge and curiosity allowed them to overmaster the barriers of technology. It is in people that the greatest strength of Scanway lies.
