Rosetta Science Operations Scheduling Legacy workshop 2017

The ESA Education Office is offering in collaboration with the Science Operations Department a new workshop titled the Rosetta Science Operations Scheduling Legacy workshop.  

The workshop aims to give university students from ESA Member and Associate States an understanding of science operations scheduling.
It will do this through analysis and scheduling exercises based on the Rosetta’s science operations performed around the Comet, including the Rosetta Philae Lander descent and the search for it that followed.
Students will be divided in groups of 3-4 students to work on different assignments. At the conclusion of the workshop, they will be given the opportunity to present their results to the experts. Students will be evaluated and provided with a certificate of participation and a course transcript.
These documents can be used to claim ECTS credit to their respective universities.

The workshop taking place from 3rd to 6th October 2017 at ESA Academy’s Training and Learning Centre in ESA-ESEC, Belgium.

Extended deadline for application: 21 August 2017 23:59pm CET.
