All students attend the core lecture series, which ensures that they have an understanding of the fundamentals of all disciplines relevant to space programs—and that they understand the relationships between these disciplines in any space-related activity.
Workshops are designed to build on knowledge acquired during Core Lectures, in a smaller classroom setting that facilitates greater interaction among participants as well as the engagement in hands-on activities.
Students will develop Small CAN-Satellites, Hydro Rockets, Propellant rockets etc.
In the Team Project experience, students work in interdisciplinary and intercultural teams to produce either a comprehensive analysis and proposal for an international space project or work on a topic relevant to the professional space sector.
