Space Education Sponsorship: Science and Space Challenges

The objective of the teaching sponsorship Space: Science and Challenges of Space (ESDS) of the École Polytechnique is to offer its students:

  • education that is relevant for careers in space, including research, management positions in industry, or world's major space agencies;
  • a formation on different aspects of space, valuable in all scientific and industrial domains.

The teaching is based on two fundamental pillars:

  • High level scientific courses with a strong connection to the research conducted in the X research center;
  • Project-based teaching based on the vitality of the Student Space Center (CSEP) and benefiting from our partnership with our sponsors: Thales Alenia Space and ArianeGroup.
