Southern Hemisphere Summer Space Program Announced at Australian Space Development Conference
The University of South Australia has joined forces with the International Space University (ISU), Strasbourg, France, to bring world class space education to the southern hemisphere with a new five-week intensive program set to launch in January 2011.
The Southern Hemisphere Summer Space Program (SHSSP) is a five week intensive live-in space studies program to be taught by Australian and international faculty and invited space industry experts. The program will be based at UniSA’s Mawson Lakes campus and target:
- space professionals
- graduate students
- undergraduates in the last two years of their degrees
The program will be accredited as one half of the academic content of UniSA’s new Graduate Certificate in Space Studies and has been designed so that students from across Australia and the region can gain academic credit in a range of other space-related undergraduate and post-graduate studies.
The inaugural program will run from January 5 to February 4 2011. From 2014 the program will be conducted in other southern hemisphere countries as well as Australia.
