›Southern Hemisphere Summer Space Program
The Southern Hemisphere Summer Space Program (SHS-SP) is ISU’s newest annual program offering, provided in partnership by ISU and the University of South Australia. The program is designed with a particular eye to the southern hemisphere environment and is built around the themes of space applications, space policy and space services, while giving a well rounded exposure to the principles and concepts involved in space science, space systems engineering and technology, space business and leadership and space legal and regulatory issues.
The program uses the interdisciplinary educational method for which ISU is renowned, and includes core lectures from international and Australian experts, workshops and a ‘White Paper’ group project lead by faculty and invited experts. The program takes the form of an intensive five week program, providing the International, Intercultural, and Interdisciplinary ISU experience in a format and schedule more suited to Southern nations.
As in other ISU programs, students will benefit from the shared experience of an international, interactive working environment with other professionals, graduate researchers and senior undergraduate students. Successful completion of the program can lead to a graduate qualification or credit towards undergraduate programs in Australia and internationally. Program graduates will become part of the professional networking forum of ISU alumni, faculty members and visiting lecturers.
Conducted in partnership with the University of South Australia (UniSA), 2013 will be the third consecutive session held at UniSA’s Mawson Lakes campus in Adelaide, Australia.
