VSSEC Educator Receives Engineers Australia Grant to attend
VSSEC would like to congratulate Stratos Patsikatheodorou and Jonathan Nebauer for being awarded grants from the Engineers Australia National Committee for Space Engineering to attend the International Space University Southern Hemisphere Summer Space Program at the University of South Australia. This five week residential program covers space applications, policy, services, systems engineering, technology, business and management.
Stratos has been sharing his knowledge and passion for space with students at VSSEC for many years. He is a very deserving recipient of this award and an excellent role model for future students as he moves forward in his career. All the students selected to attend the ISU program have distinguished themselves as being both motivated and talented. The future of the Australian space industry is very bright.
"I'm very honoured to have been awarded this scholarship by Engineers Australia, to attend the Southern Hemisphere Summer Space Program. It is great that Engineers Australia are supporting this unique course. I am very excited to meet all the other participants from around the Asia-Pacific region, and cannot wait until the program commences on January 9th." Stratos Patsikatheodorou
"I was honoured to have received such recognition, and equally accepting of the scholarship onus. Like all students, such a scholarship allows for additional financial freedom in preparing for a 5-week long period with no income. For this I am very grateful. I look forward to working with EA for the programs enrichment in the year to come." Jonathan Nebauer
