"The experience of working with an international, multidisciplinary team was immensely rewarding. Through the program I explored my interest in systems architecture, Space Missions technical documentation and payload design."

"Space Challenges Program is a well-organised, short-duration educative accellerator for anyone who wants to dive deeper into the Space sciences, satellite tech and NewSpace business opportunities. With the help of experts, it encourages insightful problem solving, interdisciplinary collaboration, cultural stimulation and the idea that Space is closer than you think!"
