Shane Jacobs, a PhD student in the Space Systems Laboratory, will be traveling to China this summer to study every facet of the aerospace industry with 80 top students from around the world. He has been awarded a full scholarship by the Canadian Federation for International Space University to attend the Summer Session of International Space University in Beijing, China. For 8 weeks Shane will live and work with an incredibly diverse and talented team of graduate students and young space professionals from around the world.


The International Space University provides graduate-level training to the future leaders of the emerging global space community at its Central Campus in Strasbourg, France, and at locations around the world. In its two-month Summer Session and one-year Masters program, ISU offers its students a unique Core Curriculum covering all disciplines related to space programs and enterprises – space science, space engineering, systems engineering, space policy and law, business and management, and space and society. Both programs also involve an intense student research Team Project providing international graduate students and young space professionals the opportunity to solve complex problems by working together in an intercultural environment.


Since its founding in 1987, ISU has graduated more than 2400 students from 93 countries. Together with hundreds of ISU faculty and lecturers from around the world, ISU alumni comprise an extremely effective network of space professionals and leaders that actively facilitates individual career growth, professional activities and international space cooperation.
