ISU’s 27th Space Studies Program To Convene In Montreal

One Of Canada's Top Engineering Schools Will Host The 2014 Sessions

The 27th annual Space Studies Program (SSP) session presented by the International Space University (ISU) will be hosted by the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) and HEC Montréal in 2014. The 2014 session will mark the third time that the ISU has convened an SSP in Canada. After Toronto in 1990 and Vancouver in 2005, the selection of Montréal will bring the SSP to a center of Canadian Space Excellence, home to a large number of space-related industrial and educational institutions as well as the Canadian Space Agency.

The ÉTS is part of the Université du Québec network and specializes in applied teaching and research in engineering. HEC Montréal is Canada’s oldest business school, and was the first business school in North America to receive the three most prestigious accreditations in the field of management education: AACSB International, AMBA and EQUIS.

By providing both the technical expertise and facilities of an engineering school with the managerial know-how and facilities of a leading management school, the ÉTS and HEC Montréal partnership offers tremendous potential to complement ISU’s rich curriculum.

“The opportunity to convene the SSP in Montréal is something we’ve long awaited," said Prof. Angie Bukley, ISU Dean and SSP Director. "With well over 400 ISU alumni, a well-established ISU scholarship foundation, dozens of ISU faculty members, and the strong support of the Canadian Space Agency, Canada as a country is among the strongest of ISU supporters across the board. Montréal as a venue is culturally rich and will offer a plethora of opportunities for our participants.”

The ISU provides an interdisciplinary education in an intercultural and international environment to support the development of future leaders in the world space community. The SSP offers its participants a unique and comprehensive education covering all aspects of space programs and enterprises including space physical sciences, space engineering, policy and law, business and management, space and society, space applications, and space life sciences and human spaceflight.

The ÉTS and HEC Montréal believe that hosting the SSP14 jointly not only reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the SSP, but more importantly reflects the reality of the space sector.
