NASA: North-Jutland Aalborg Space Adventure

General description

Are you interested in the development of the modern technologies behind electronic systems in space, and would you like to see how universities and companies work to create the space technologies of tomorrow? Then you should totally apply to this course and join our Space Adventure in Aalborg: the Danish hub of Satellite and Space-Technology Research!

The academic parts of this course will introduce you to a combination of Space Networks and Power Electronics through a combination of lectures and company visits. You will be able to apply all the knowledge gained from the academics to a project work on the course. Also, the academics will introduce Problem Based Learning (PBL): the acclaimed learning model of Aalborg University.

Our social activities will give you a chance to find out why Danes are some of the happiest people in the world, participate in funny activities, and try out delicious food and drinks. And who knows, maybe one or two surprises will occur as well. So don’t miss out on your chance to enjoy 10 wonderful days in Aalborg, learn (or laugh about) how to say “rødgrød med fløde” and see the real, wild vikings in action.

If it sounds cool, then remember: Don't be shy, just apply! And most importantly of all, don’t forget to stay PANDA! (Pretty AND Awesome).
