Participate in the Egyptian Space Agency Summer Training for Students


The Egyptian Space Agency is excited to announce the commencement of its annual summer training programme for students from Egyptian universities and institutes. The programme will run from July 14 to September 9, 2024.

The programme is delivered within the framework of the support provided by the Egyptian Space Agency to serve the scientific, research and academic community and its human cadres, including scientists, experts and researchers. The goal is to harness the agency’s technological and laboratory capabilities to disseminate modern technological science among Egyptian university students in a manner that links their academic studies with practical and scientific reality.

Training Segmentation
First Programme 

The general training on space technology offers trainees a comprehensive understanding of the various applications of space technology in everyday life, the functioning of satellites, and the primary systems involved. The programme includes visits to satellite design factories, where trainees learn about the design, testing, assembly, and integration of satellites. In addition, trainees will visit space operation centres to understand satellite planning, monitoring, control stations, and data reception from Egyptian satellites like Egypt-2. The training concludes with sessions at the data processing and spatial imaging centre, where participants learn about the diverse applications and fields that benefit from satellite data.

  • This five-day training programme is suitable for students of all ages, from 12 to 18, and all disciplines.
Second Programme

Space innovation workshop using the satellite educational space Keys for students of engineering colleges in various disciplines. It is a practical training programme in which the trainee gets acquainted with the stages of designing space missions, starting from the requirements to the main specifications of the satellite, followed by the introduction of the satellite systems, design specifications, and the tasks of each sub-system. One of the satellite systems and the different testing methods to ensure that each system of its tasks is executed according to the specifications set beforehand, then training is done on the method of operating the satellite and sending different commands from the ground stations to control it and receive different data and analyse it to identify the state of the satellite operation, and this is done through the moon. Space Keys’ educational industrial is specifically designed to be an educational platform that enables engineers to get hands-on experience operating and testing satellites practically.

  • The training programme lasts five consecutive days and is suitable for students of engineering colleges in various disciplines.
Third Programme

The programme focuses on the space environment and space weather. During the training, participants will learn about the effects of the space environment on satellite systems and be introduced to space debris and its negative impacts on space missions. The programme covers the magnetic field, ionosphere, and methods to predict space weather activities using various simulation systems and data analysis techniques. After understanding space weather, trainees will engage in the practical part of the training programme. 

The programme includes the simulation of space environmental risks and their effects on satellite systems. This involves debris modelling and impact mitigation, analysing solar cycle indicators, identifying geomagnetic storms, examining ground magnetic indicators, and analysing ionospheric cover. These activities help understand and mitigate space weather’s effects on satellite systems.

  • The training lasts two weeks (a theoretical week and a practical week) and is suitable for students of science and engineering colleges that specialise in space.
Fourth Programme

Small Satellite Workshop (CanSat) designed for school students (a satellite is trained for each student). Through this programme, students learn simply about how satellites work and are trained in a practical way to install, programme and operate satellites until the launch of the Can Moon Launch Tower. SAT and photos are received wirelessly and are considered a unique scientific and practical experience for school students

  • The duration of the training is five consecutive days – Suitable for students aged 12 to 17 years.
