Engineers Australia and Space Policy Unit Support Student Participation at the 10th Australian Space Science Conference

September 27 - 30, 2010

Conferences, such as the Australian Space Science Conference, are a great way for university students to learn more about the Australian space industry and network with the community. To encourage student participation, the Engineers Australia National Committee for Space Engineering and the Space Policy Unit are providing a registration subsidy for the first 60 post and undergraduate students who register.

The 10th Australian Space Science Conference (ASSC) will be held at the University of Queensland in Brisbane. This conference is jointly sponsored and organised by the National Committee for Space Science (NCSS) and the National Space Society of Australia (NSSA).
