Education Curricula

Since 1988 the United Nations, through its Programme on Space Applications, has been supporting the establishment of Regional Centres for Space Science and Technology Education, affiliated to the United Nations, in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Western Asia.

It was noted that education varied significantly between nations and even between institutions within the same country, which led to differences in space science and technology education curricula in terms of content and modes of presentation. To ensure a common standard of teaching at the centres, education curricula have been developed in the major fields of space applications.

Additional education curricula on Space Law and Space Engineering are presently under development and will complement the curricula in the core disciplines.
