ESA Academy’s Product Assurance Awareness Training Course

on 27 February 2018

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) is inviting Romanian MSc and PhD university students studying an engineering or scientific subject to apply to the Product Assurance Awareness Training Course (PAA), organised by ESA’s Academy. The deadline for applications is 9 April 2018.

This course will equip students with knowledge in Product Assurance (PA) and will teach them how this knowledge is implemented in a space project not only in ESA but also in the space business.

PA engineers are a crucial part of mission operations. They are responsible for ensuring that materials, mechanical parts, processes, and electrical components used in spacecraft and launchers are fit for their purpose over the entire lifetime of the mission.

This upcoming PAA Training Course is designed to attract the next generation of specialists needed to fulfil these vital positions. Run by ESA’s current PA managers and discipline experts, students will discover how PA is an integral part of engineering activities, playing a role in the development, design, test philosophy, building, and operation of systems. 

Those wanting to apply should meet the following criteria: be aged between 18 and 32, be a citizen of an ESA Member or Associate State, be enrolled as a full-time MSc (BSc completed) or PhD student in a university studying an engineering or scientific subject (not graduating before the training course), or studying for an engineering degree.

The selected students will be sponsored by ESA. The sponsorship will cover accommodation and meals as well as up to 200 Euros for travelling to Redu, Belgium.
