Bachelor and master students have to realize semester projects related to their field of specialization. These projects can be conducted within initiatives such as Asclepios, that is why we offer students from EPFL or sometimes Unil with the possibility to earn ECTS credits while working on space related projects. 

The list below presents the currently open positions. Note that for some projects, the supervising laboratory is still to be determined (TBD), and the student will have to work with Asclepios to find a supervisor.

If you are interested in a project, we advise you to download the detailled project sheet to read additional informations.

Do not hesitate to contact us by filling the contact form if you are interested.
