South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications announces SPIN Placement Success

By on

At the South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications we are delighted to announce that we have received a grant in order to host a SPIN Placement student this year.

The Space Placements in Industry (SPIN) scheme provides placement opportunities for those considering employment in the space sector and connects space sector organisations who want to find the most talented and enthusiastic people to ensure the future success of their businesses. The scheme is managed by the UK Space Agency and supported by the Satellite Applications Catapult.

Which means that we are now looking for a placement student to join us. The title of the project is ‘Immersive Space’: developing immersive technology demonstrations for
Space Enterprise Labs – and you can find the full job description here.

In short, we are developing user-defined space-related immersive (e.g. virtual reality and augmented reality) demonstration content, which can be used and distributed locally, regionally and nationally using ‘Space Enterprise Labs’, thereby educating and inspiring many across the UK space ecosystem. We are looking for an undergraduate or postgraduate student who is creatively minded with the necessary knowledge to develop virtual reality content. The candidate’s background could be in any of the following disciplines: Computer Games Technology, Creative Computing, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Computer Animation, and Digital Media. If you think this is you – please do follow this link to find out how to apply.
