The Space Internship Network (SpIN) has been designed to provide an introductory link for undergraduate students considering employment in the space sector, and industry leaders looking to find the most talented and enthusiastic people to ensure the future success of their business.
The value of internships has long been recognised to offer benefits to the student, gaining valuable experience of the work environment, and benefits to the employer who can identify a project that might otherwise not be achievable, carried out with a fresh pair of eyes and perhaps a fresh perspective on their own organisation.
The pilot scheme in 2013 was hugely successful, with 46 students supported in 13 different organisations throughout the sector, and with a wide range of backgrounds. We're delighted that the programme will run again in 2014, and would very much like to hear from employers who have got a short-term project that needs doing. We welcome applications from students of all disciplines who are enthusiastic about working in the space sector.
