ESA’s Education Office would like to inform you that the calls for applications for the ESA Academy’s Ladybird Guide to Spacecraft Communications and Space Systems Engineering Training Courses 2020 are now open. These training courses will be held at ESA Academy’s Training and Learning Facility in ESEC-Galaxia, Belgium respectively from 18 to 21 February and from 3 to 6 March 2020. Please find more information about these opportunities below.
Ladybird Guide to Spacecraft Communications Training Course 2020:
ESA’s Education Office is looking for 30 highly motivated and enthusiastic university students to participate in the fifth edition of the Ladybird Guide to Spacecraft Communications Training Course, which will be held from 18 to 21 February 2020. During the four days, participating students will be introduced to the fascinating world of spacecraft communications. This training course will be constituted of formal lectures with a heavy emphasis on interactions with the students about the challenges of communicating with a spacecraft and the subsystems involved in communications (both on-board and on the ground): what can go wrong, troubleshooting, and traps to be avoided during operations and testing.
- Open to: 3rd/4th year Bachelor, Master and PhD engineering students.
- Application Deadline: 9 December 2020

Space Systems Engineering Training Course 2020:
To help prepare the next generation of Space Systems Engineers, ESA is looking for 30 highly motivated and enthusiastic university students to complete the second edition of the Space Systems Engineering Training Course, which will be held from 3 to 6 March 2020. During the four days, participating students will learn about the background and challenges of space systems engineering, before delving into the roles of a systems engineer within ESA, and exploring the system engineering process in detail. The course will also give students valuable insight into concurrent design and systems approach to verification and validation as well as the interactions with project management, including project planning and risk management. The course will also include a number of group exercises, with the aim of getting participants familiar with systems engineering products and some real world problems faced by space systems engineers.
- Open to: 3rd or 4th year Bachelor, Master and PhD engineering students.
- Application Deadline: 13 January 2020
