Edinburgh / Vienna, August 2, 2022. – The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the Government of Japan, in cooperation with the Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech), announced that they are looking for students from developing countries to study nano development -satellites as part of another round of the Post-Graduate Study on Nano-Satellite Technologies (PNST) under the Access to Space for All initiative.

Both the master’s program and the doctoral program offer three slots, covering tuition and helping with living expenses. The PNST aims to open access to space education and research on satellite development for students from developing countries. Kyutech will ensure that students can use its facilities for hands-on activities and to learn about the entire satellite development cycle.

The PNST program primarily seeks postgraduate students from developing and non-space countries. Students in the Nano-Satellite Development program receive the basic capability for space technology. The program offers on-the-job training, design, construction and testing of a satellite under the supervision of experts. Applications are welcome until January 9, 2023.
