This years SSDW is currently running. The final presentations of both teams are public.
Join us at the Institute of Space Systems (Stuttgart, Germany) or watch the livestream online on our YouTube channel.
Institute of Space Systems (IRS)
@ University of Stuttgart, Germany
If the situation of the Covid-19 pandemic allows it, we look forward to having a workshop on campus of the University of Stuttgart again.
We will keep you updated on the situation.
Students and young professionals from all disciplines and all nationalitites!
What you need:
English language skills
Interest in human space flight
Ability to work and communicate in an international multidisciplinary team
This year the teams were assigned to design a lunar economy mission
At the beginning of the week our participants got their assignment by the costumers CEO, Chris Welch. He told them about his vision of a futuristic lunar economy. Now it is up to the two teams, each consisting of 20 participants to make use of their creativity and expertise. Be sure to join the final presentations on Saturday 30th of July at 11:00 am at the Institute of Space Systems (Stuttgart, Germany) or online on our YouTube Channel.
Team Red is designing the lunar orbit station and Team Blue is designing the lunar surface base. We wish both teams the best of luck!

Comments from past participants
Cost & Risk Analysis – Team Blue 2019
The SSDW is surely an intense yet enriching learning experience and challenge to overcome. Working with an international multidisciplinary team has allowed me to make connections within the aerospace industry I never thought I would!

Thermal Control System – Team Red 2019
With the SSDW, I had the opportunity to participate in an interdisciplinary and internal team designing the structural concept of the A.M.O.R.E. lunar space station. The satisfying experience of developing the outer structure, selecting the materials, and planning the assembly process for the different modules has improved my engineering skills and broadened my horizons.

Project Management – Team Red 2019
The SSDW is a great opportunity to get in touch with the development of a space project. The team-oriented challenge with students of all kind of backgrounds with passion for the space technologies is enhanced by the interaction with the experts and the short development time, forcing them to do their best to meet the challenge. If you could aply, do not hesitate to do so.
Mission Analysis – Team Red 2021
Want to measure the peak of your diligence? SSDW is the place. It requires you to put in your best effort, but only to come out of it wanting even more. It’s dynamic organisation and a very steep learning curve benefits the students a great deal. SSDW is also an ideal event to learn and build contacts within the industry. I would do it all over again, no questions asked! It has an inspirational work culture and in no time, your team is like a family – you live the experience together.
Robotics – Team Red 2021
Journalism – Team Blue 2019
The SSDW is a great opportunity to apply the knowledge gained at the university. I have heard many space related topics at the university, but only in theory. You can only learn the real engineering processes during workshops like the SSDW. You will learn so much during this course, both technical parts from the SSDW experts as well as personal things about yourself, like how you act under pressure and to push your limits. I would recommend any student interested in space to participate in the SSDW.

One mission. Your vision.
