Learning unit contents

Through the training and learning programme, the ESA Academy in Redu (ESEC, Belgium), https://www.esa.int/Education/ESA_Academy, organizes a series of courses dedicated to space technology. Undergraduate students from universities across Europe can participate in these courses. The AERO0034 course gives the possibility to ULiege students to participate in the courses offered.

IMPORTANT: students will receive 5 credits only if they are formally accepted by ESA (students should send an application) and if they participate in the course. Students should thus apply well in advance, ideally in June or over the summer, to be sure to be accepted by the Fall.
