Academic Unit

It is evident that in the various stages of careers in the space sector, there are different needs for individuals to deepen space knowledge. In order to respond to these needs, ISU has developed a number of programs which differ in length and intensity. All programs are based upon the often referred to 3I principle, i.e. they attempt to merge three components:

-    Interdisciplinarity
-    Intercultural groups
-    International participation

 

Academic Programs

The admission requirements are flexible, and in function of the duration and the time period, a participant is free to choose a certain program. As a broad distinction, however, we can classify the academic ISU programs as follows:

 

ISU Program Target Group Funding Emphasis
SSP Mix of graduates, young & seasoned professionals Scholarships, Employers, & Personal Interdisciplinary Space Studies
MSS Primarily recent graduates Scholarships, Employers, & Personal Space Applications
SHS-SP Undergraduates, recent graduates Scholarships, Employers, & Personal Interdisciplinary Space Studies

 

Executive Programs

In certain cases participants wish to acquire good notions in order to better operate in the space environment. This is often the case for non-technical staff or technical staff coming over from different sectors. For those persons the ISU Executive program was created.
