Concurrent Design is a process in spacecraft system engineering that has been widely adopted in space organizations. This paper will describe the process of setting up a facility in a university and will try to answer a question of where CDF concept can fit into education. We will discuss the process, hardware, software and knowledge management procedures. Focus of our work was to create an Integrated Design Model (IDM) for nanosats and microsats. This IDM was used to design various space related projects including a Cubesat missions, suborbital plane and a space telescope. Facility is also used for other multidisciplinary projects.
