Top undergraduate and graduate students from across the U.S. and abroad come to CU Boulder to get involved in unique hands-on design experiences—such as the recently launched Colorado Student Space Weather Experiment (CSSWE) CubeSat and Sierra Nevada’s Dream Chaser vehicle.

In addition to the programs provided by our academic partners, ASV holds a series of Professional Development Seminar Series (PDSS) each semester to help prepare students for their careers in aerospace. We are always looking for ideas and volunteers from industry to help support the PDSS. Contact Abby Benson if you would like to participate.

Multidisciplinary Space Courses

In 2016, CU Boulder—through its Grand Challenge initiative—launched the Space Minor, an academic program open to undergraduate students of any major who want to learn about space. 

Colorado Space Grant Consortium

CU Boulder is also proud to host the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (COSG) on our campus. COSG is a state-wide program that provides Colorado students access to space through innovative courses, real-world hands-on satellite programs, and interactive outreach programs. COSG is funded by NASA as part of National Space Grant Program. There are 52 consortia in the National Space Grant program, with one consortium in each state plus Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.
