Space Studies Program First Held at MIT to Take Place at Florida Tech and Kennedy Space Center June 4-Aug. 3, 2012
MELBOURNE, FLA.—International Space University (ISU) will hold its 25th annual Space Studies Program (SSP) of the International Space University (ISU) at Florida Institute of Technology and Kennedy Space Center (KSC), June 4-Aug. 3, 2012. The first program was held at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and has been held around the world ever since.
Florida Tech Professor Guy Boy chairs the program’s Florida Tech/KSC organizing committee.
Each summer, ISU offers an intense nine-week course at rotating locations for post-graduate university students and professionals in all disciplines. Courses cover technical and nontechnical space-related topics, including technologies, physical science, satellite applications, life sciences, policy management and social sciences.
“The Florida Tech community is looking forward to the 25th annual Space Studies Program,” said T. Dwayne McCay, Florida Tech executive vice president and chief operating officer. “For more than 50 years, the educational mission of our university has been closely linked to NASA and space-related research. As our world prepares for the next steps in space, Florida Tech is pleased to support the ongoing efforts that will lead us all to new frontiers of discovery.”
Bob Cabana, KSC director, said, “Kennedy Space Center looks forward to hosting the 2012 session in partnership with Florida Tech. This is an amazing opportunity, not only for the students participating, but for the employees of KSC to share their knowledge and experiences with an international network of leading space experts and professionals.”
ISU helps to develop future leaders for the world space community by providing interdisciplinary educational programs in an international and intercultural environment. ISU also offers its students a unique and comprehensive education that covers all aspects of space programs and enterprises—space science, space engineering, systems engineering, space policy and low, business and management, and space and society.
