ESA’s Education Office is looking for 30 talented and motivated university students with an engineering or physics background from ESA Member States, Canada and Slovenia to take part in the upcoming Concurrent Engineering Workshop set to take place between 14 to 17 January 2020.
Concurrent engineering is a method of designing and developing products for the space sector. Contrary to traditional design methods, in concurrent engineering all subsystems are designed simultaneously. This is a far more efficient way of working, but comes with its own unique challenge: solutions in one area that could impact the design of another subsystem must be instantly identified and communicated between teams. Although concurrent engineering is a more complicated process to begin with, in effect it allows mistakes to be identified – and rectified – earlier, therefore reducing the overall design time.
