Welcome to the site of the Student Aerospace Challenge 2017/2018


Registration to the 12th exercise is open!


As a consequence of the high number of competitors during the last exercise and the quality of the produced work, the ACE and its Partners renew for 2017-2018 the Student Aerospace Challenge allowing students to take part in a Manned Suborbital Vehicle study.

If you are an undergraduate from a European college or university, you are given an opportunity to create a team with fellow students and to work on a meaningful project covering many topics (technical, medical or legal aspects, etc...). In this way, you can put your knowledge into practice within the framework of a project (linked to your core activity or in complement) concerning an evolving field.


bienvenue1bis.jpgThe reference to the different concepts of Manned Suborbital Vehicles around the world, the support of the manufacturers, the support of educational establishments make the Student Aerospace Challenge a unique project for your ambitions.

Go through this web site, speak about it around you, form your team and send your application to the Selection Committee to possibly, as hundreds of engaged students during former years, actively take part in this adventure while strengthening your abiliity to join the professional world.

Good reading and see you soon!
