About Summer Schools

The Siberian State Aerospace University is located in the heart of Russia and the Summer School Programme offers an excellent opportunity for international students to combine their academic interests with a genuine Siberian experience.
For two weeks, from the 10th to the 23th of August, SibSAU will run a Summer School Programme on Mobile Systems for Space Research, providing the opportunity to gain experience and strengthen your knowledge of the field. Over the course, classes will be taught both indoor and outdoor to bring you into the Siberian countryside to help give you that Siberian experience. Our highly qualified staff will not only help broaden your knowledge of Mobile Systems of Space Objects, but of Siberia itself, too.
The course is suitable for undergraduate students who are interested in Computer Science and the Space Sector, no extensive background in Mobile Systems is required.

Mobile Systems for Space Research

During the two-week course, students will attend a series of intensive lectures focusing on The Principles of Closed-Loop Space Systems Running.
Experienced members of the University's staff and Space Industry professionals will teach all lectures and seminars. They will help ensure that students carry out an experiment in developing and constructing a remote-controlled, mobile space-device by the end of the programme.
Throughout the programme, students will work on a group project in Mobile Systems for Space Objects with the aim of developing a spacecraft capable of auto-navigating difficult terrain, overcoming various obstacles to reach the targeted area.
Students will have the opportunity to meet highly qualified experts in the field and learn from their experiences, and also visit various Aerospace Industry Installations.
The primary objective of the course is to enhance the participating students' interest in the field of Space Research and provide a solid grounding therein, upon which future careers or further academic research can prosper.
Lectures and seminars are held in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics, the Foreign Language Resource Centre, the Scientific and Training Centre Space Systems and Technologies, the Industry Resource Centre Space Vehicles and Systems, the Centre of Space Observation and the SibSAU Student Space Mission Control Centre of Small Space Vehicles.
In general, there will be 3-4 lectures/seminars daily that last for an hour and a half each. Students have access to the library and computer labs. After the lectures, in the afternoon, students meet up in their groups to work to elaborate their group projects.
Russian language study is available but not required during the summer program.
