xperience what is it like in real satellite development projects,” Cui said.
“We will ask the students to set up a project team to simulate research and development of an imaginary satellite, and e
ach of them will be designated a role ranging from chief designer to subsystem manager,” Cui added.
“We also offer opportunities to the students to visit satellite research-related institu
tes and satellite users to see satellites’ assembly, testing and experiments,” Cui said.
“They will be able to get personal understanding of spacecraft research and development and obtain some know-how.”
He said space training providers in other countries will not take foreign students to design or production sites.
Cui said most of the lecturers in the program are senior researchers and chief desi
gners at Chinese space institutes and provide the foreign students with the latest expertise.
