Welcome to the site of the Student Aerospace Challenge


Application to 14th exercise is possible until November 18th 2019.


The Challenge, proposed by the ACE and its industrial and institutional partners, allows students to participate to the study of a manned suborbital vehicle. This is a reusable vehicle, which will reach Mach 3.5 and 100 km of altitude, the edge of space.

If you are an undergraduate from a European college or university, you are given an opportunity to create a team with fellow students and to work on a meaningful project covering many topics (technical, medical or legal aspects, etc...). You can put your knowledge into practice within the framework of a project (linked to your core activity or in complement) concerning an evolving field.

Go through this web site, speak about it around you, form your team and send your application to the Selection Committee to possibly, as hundreds of engaged students during former years, actively take part in this adventure while strengthening your ability to join the professional world.

Good reading and see you soon!
