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 missions, systems, and technologies. It aims at providing
the students with 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, based on both the academia and the industry.
A general information on the international structure of SEEDS,
its history, etc.., can be found in the European website www.seeds-master.eu
Students who will pass all exams and successfully complete their internship (SEEDS Project
) will obtain the Specializing Master certificate at the end of the course. Students with a partial registration can request a certificate of attendance.
