Siberian State Aerospace University offers the unique summer school program "Autonomous Systems for Planetary Exploration" for international students. During the two-week course students will attend lectures and seminars concerning the principles of closed loop space system running. All lectures and seminars will be given by the highly-qualified faculty and practitioners in the space sphere. As the result of the course the students will carry out an experiment in developing and constructing a moving device with a remote control in the sphere of space technology.
Lectures and seminars will take place at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics, Foreign Languages Resource Centre, Scientific and Training Centre "Space Systems and Technologies", Industry Resource Centre "Space Vehicles and Systems", Student Space Mission Control Centre.
The course includes parts of the following disciplines:
- Theories of Control and Automated Control in Space Systems
- Physical Principles of Flight Support
- Hardware for Spacecraft Automation
- Cyclicity of Materials and Energy Supply in Closed Loop Space Systems
- Expert Systems in Space Systems
- Fundamentals of Image Processing
- Fundamentals of Engineering Activity
- Variety of Space Crafts
- Fundamentals of Artificial Neural Networks
- Special life support systems
Moreover, within the program there will be an opportunity for the participants to present their home countries and universities - their customs, cultural and historical heritage and traditional cuisine. This will allow the participants to gain more information about each other and develop cooperation and friendship for the future.
At the end of the course students will be awarded a certificate confirming participation in the program and a transcript of records.
