Saudi Space Commission launches Space101 training programme

Under expert supervision, training will cover the basics of space science and technology.

Saudi Space Commission has launched its first specialised training programme in the field of space and space technology in cooperation with Airbus Defense and Space.

The programme aims to raise the level of education and practical know-how in the space sector for undergraduates and those interested in learning space science.

The commission explained that the training focuses on the basics of space science and technology by implementing professional programmes under expert supervision.

The programme is the result of a partnership agreement concluded on the sidelines of the International Astronautical Congress 2022 in October between the Saudi commission and Airbus to train national cadres in the space sector and provide job opportunities for trainees in the field.

It also contributes to achieving the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 by developing national human capabilities and qualifying them for the labour market.
