Students Work Experience

At the European Space Agency (ESA) we promote the development of new technologies in Europe to better understand our planet Earth, our Solar System and the Universe we are living in.

To accomplish this ambitious goal Europe needs young people to dedicate their careers to science, technology and other Space related professions.

What do we offer?

In the framework of the 4ESO+empresa, the European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC) offers students from schools from the Madrid Region the possibility to join scientists and engineers during three days to get an insight into their daily work. Each school can propose up to 3 students.
