Obiettivo del corso: Being focused on the Engineering of the Space Systems for Exploration and Development, the SEEDS Master Course is perfectly phased with the National, European and International projects on Exploration such as the ESA Aurora Programme and the NASA Constellation Programme. The employment rates of the graduates from the three SEEDS editions (the only ones concluded at present, the fourth being still running) confirm these expectations: 33 out of 35 graduates from the 2005/06 edition to the 2007/2008 are presently working on space activities in Europe.
Rivolto a: Bac+5 level degree (e.g. French Diplôme d'Ingénieur, Italian Laurea Magistrale or former 5-year Laurea, German Diplom or equivalent degree at MSc level) in Industrial Engineering (Aerospace, Mechanical, Thermal, Nuclear, Electronics …), in Information and Communications Technologies or in Physical Sciences is required. Bsc or MEng degrees at a minimum level of Bac+4 may also be considered for admission.

SEEDS is an International Post Graduate Master Course (Italian: "Master Universitario di II livello") in Space Exploration and Development Systems (5th edition 2009-2010) established by the First School of Engineering of Politecnico di Torino (Italy), Supaero Toulouse (France) and managed by COREP.

Thanks to its innovative programme, SEEDS aims to meet the request emerging from the European Space Industry of a new generation of high level specialists, whose main characteristics are to be educated in an international environment and to have gathered an experience in working on advanced projects in some of the most renowned Space Centres, Agencies and Companies of the European Union.

To fulfil these objectives, SEEDS originates from the collaboration of three European universities, namely an Italian (Politecnico di Torino), a French one (Supaero Toulouse,now ISAE) and a German one (Bremen Universitat) all located in towns whose common feature is that of hosting industries and research centres linked to one another by a long-standing tradition of co-operation in space.

The main object of SEEDS is the exploration of the space and the development of the related systems. It deliberately differs from the utilization of the space, which forms the object of other existing master courses (most of them on national bases). Selecting the space exploration as its principal theme, SEEDS aims to harness the most recent development lines emerging in the space strategies of both the European Union and the USA and, according to these strategies, to prepare the specialists who will be required in the near future.

Thanks to a special support granted by ESA to SEEDS in order to foster its Europeanization by encouraging the enrolment in Torino of non Italian students from the States sitting in the ESA Ruling Council, the best 5 selected applicants from the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Luxemburg, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Canada will be fully exempted from paying the fee. Additionally, each of them will receive a grant of 3000,00 Euro to support the expenses related to the SEEDS Project Work mobility across Europe. This grant will be paid just after the start of the Project Work activity.

The same conditions (fee exemption and grant to the Project Work) apply also to the best 3 selected applicants from the so-called PECS (Plan for European Cooperating States) countries being also ESA Candidate Member States, namely: Hungary, Romania and Poland.

In addition n. 3 grants of 1500,00 Euro are available for students from the ESA and PECS countries enrolled in SEEDS at Supaero (Toulouse) through the local TAS-Astro Course and joining in Torino the SEEDS Project Work Team to support their mobility during the Project Work.

The deadline to apply is: 28th September 2009.

A few places covered by ESA fellowships (with full fee exemption) are still available for candidates from the ESA and PECS countries (Italy not included). Therefore the application deadline is, for those candidates, delayed to October 15th, 2009.
