Welcome to the site of the Student Aerospace Challenge


Take care of you


For the 15th exercise, a second type of vehicle and new topics are proposed. 

Application period is open until the 29th of November.


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!
