Discover where you belong at ESA with academic videos section

19 March 2013

To give you a quick and easy way to find out where you might fit in at ESA, we are now starting a series of academic background videos.

When we present ESA at job fairs across Europe, we always find students who are really excited and enthusiastic about a future career with the European Space Agency. 

Students often tell us that they are studying either mechanical or electrical engineering when they visit our career stand, or that they are soon going to be a software or an aerospace engineer.

We are then asked the fundamental question: Can you please tell me what exactly I could do at ESA with my academic background? We could spend hours answering this question! ESA is one of the most fascinating work places for engineers!

To save time and give you a quick and easy way to find out where you might fit in at ESA, we are now starting a series of academic background videos. According to your field of study, may it be electrical, mechanical, software or aerospace engineering, you will be able to learn about the professional fields within ESA.

Whether you are just curious about finding out which field of study may lead you to a future career in the space sector, or whether you are keen on doing an internship at ESA or considering applying as a Young Graduate Trainee, this information is for you!
