The Space Placements in INdustry scheme (SPIN) has been designed to provide an introductory link for undergraduate students considering employment in the space sector and space sector organisations looking to find the most talented and enthusiastic people to ensure the future success of their businesses.

SPIN seeks to provide project placements within companies and research organisations for undergraduates in the summer of their 2nd/3rd year or 3rd/4th year from a range of disciplines of interest to employers within the space sector. It is recognised that all high tech industry sectors need STEM graduates in order to grow their business areas, and the space sector is no different. Through SpIN, the sector is ensuring that the brightest and best graduates are encouraged to focus their attention on space for their career planning.
