Sydney SpaceNet is a collaborative project intended to link, extend and leverage the University's existing multi-disciplinary capabilities into a premier Australian university space research program. We intend to gain an important role in national and international space efforts.
Our space research addresses the science, engineering, technology, and commercial services related to space, including particularly those measured from or provided by space assets such as satellites.
By combining people and research from across our faculties, departments, centres and institutes, we will stimulate new research and strengthen existing research.
SpaceNet is a founding member of delta-V towards developing Space Industry 2.0 for Australia.
Space Internships & Projects Program
We can pair up University of Sydney students and staff whose work involved space and satellite data with organisations who want to collaborate on space-related research and can offer internships and other work.
