About the training and learning programme


The Training and Learning Programme is one of the two pillars of the ESA Academy programme for university students. It aims at complementing the standard academic formation in space-related disciplines offered in the ESA Member and Cooperating States’ universities. One of its main objectives is to attract future scientists and engineers to the space sector by transferring knowledge, know-how, and standards in all fields of ESA expertise. The goal is to better prepare the future workforce for the space community, and to show students the many opportunities offered by space research, facilities, and applications for science and engineering in fields unrelated to space.


  • Space engineering
  • Space sciences
  • Space medicine
  • Spacecraft operations and communication
