On 17 November 2014 the Regional Centre for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia and the Pacific (RCSSTEAP-China) was inaugurated at the Beihang University in Beijing, China.
The new Centre is the sixth in a series of Regional Centres for Space Science and Technology Education established world-wide within existing national/regional institutions in developing countries in response to General Assembly resolution 45/72.
The Centres assist Member States in enhancing indigenous capabilities in different areas of space science and technology that have the potential to advance social and economic development. Each Centre provides in-depth education, research and application programmes for university educators, as well as research and application scientists with an initial emphasis on space-based remote sensing, satellite communications, satellite meteorology and space sciences. The Centres are affiliated to the United Nations through a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.
The RCSSTEAP-China Centre and Beihang University are offering independent Master fellowships on Remote Sensing & GIS, GNSS, and Space Law and Policy. Please check the following link for more detailed information: MASTA 2016 Announcement.
