Space technology micro-courses

What is happening in the Space industry?

The space sector is one of the most exciting and inspiring industries today. Australian businesses can now enjoy unprecedented Australian Government support to disrupt their industries and foray into the space sector. The space industry is forecast to triple in size over the next 10 years, and is proving to be an industry that is stable and resistant to economic downturns. (Review of Australia’s Space Industry Capability (March 2018), Report from the Expert reference Group)

How can you get involved?

The Australian Government made a call for organisations to leapfrog into areas of future competitive advantage such as artificial intelligence, robotics, big data analytics to space systems and derived information, next-generation communications to enable broadband space to earth communication as well as innovation in antenna, rocket and spacecraft systems. The options are endless.
