In its first U.S.-based education partnership, International Space University has joined with the Center for Space Entrepreneurship at Florida Tech to launch an innovative graduate certificate program that will help prepare students and industry professionals for success in the rapidly evolving commercial space industry.

Known as the ISU-CSE Commercial Space Program, the 12-credit, four-course certificate program complements existing master’s degree-level programs in engineering, business and social sciences. Proven industry and academic figures, including NASA experts and private-sector pioneers, will serve as faculty members and lecturers. They will provide students with rigorous, practical training in space finance, policy, management, technology and entrepreneurship.

“Commercial space is growing at lightning speed, and there is an acute need for effective and educated leaders in this complex sector,” said Andrew Aldrin, director of the Center for Space Entrepreneurship. “This is the only graduate certificate program in the United States that focuses on nurturing that next generation of thought leaders in the world of commercial and entrepreneurial space.”

Taking place on Florida’s Space Coast, this fully accredited, summer intensive program will give a maximum of 50 graduate students and young professionals from around the world the opportunity to gain valuable academic and real-world insight to spark economic innovation within the emerging commercial space sector.

“Florida Tech was founded at the dawn of the Space Age and over the last 60 years has helped educate the men and women, from astronauts to mission managers, who have defined and developed the space industry,” said Florida Tech President Dwayne McCay. “The ISU-CSE program proudly continues this legacy, pairing leading instructors with the latest scholarship to produce classes and experiences of the utmost benefit to participants.”

The first Commercial Space Program cohort will be held from June 3-July 12, 2019, at the world-renowned Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The Visitor Complex offers an array of fully equipped classrooms and learning spaces, while providing students access to regular space launches and unprecedented networking and formal technical exchange opportunities with industry executives, government officials, scientists, engineers, investors and enthusiasts.

All applications are due by April 30, 2019
