The International II level Specializing Master in Space Exploration and Development Systems (SEEDS) started in 2005 following a proposal of Politecnico di Torino addressed to its European partners.

SEEDS is focused on the human and robotic exploration of space and on the related systems, instrumentation and techniques. It aims to provide the core applied physics and engineering skills required to develop space systems and missions from initial concept through design, assembly and verification, to launch and operations.

To reach these objectives SEEDS relies on the tight collaboration of three European Higher Education Institutions located in three countries, namely Politecnico di Torino in Italy, Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et l’Espace (ISAE, Toulouse) in France and University of Leicester in UK. All three partners share common features including: strong links with space industry, heritage in space research and exploration, and the inclusion of high-level expertise in the delivery of teaching.

A general information on the international structure of SEEDS, its history, etc.., can be found in the European website www.seeds-master.eu.

Specializing Master DIPLOMA
Students who will pass all exams and successfully complete their internship (SEEDS Project Work) will obtain the Specializing Master certificate at the end of the course. Students with a partial registration can request a certificate of attendance.
