Awards ceremony for winning teams of the Student Aerospace Challenge, an annual competition that allows university students to participate in studies for a reusable manned suborbital vehicle. This is divided into 11 work packages: Aerodynamics and Flight control, Structure, Propulsion, Innovative architecture, Cabin layout (except electronic devices), Onboard systems, Spaceport, Communication, Economical aspects, Legal aspects and Medical aspects. Students have the opportunity to create a team, put their knowledge into practice by working on a specific work package and enjoy an original experience which brings them closer to the aerospace sector. Selected teams had around five months to work on their projects and submit a report. They presented their projects to the partners of this challenge and the best presentations will be rewarded at this ceremony.
