Launch Your Space Career

Careers Launch is an event aimed at students, graduates, and young professionals who want to succeed within the space sector, featuring networking, talks, panels, workshops, and mentoring.            

Wednesday 13th November in Belfast, Northern Ireland

As part of the Reinventing Space Conference 2019, UKSEDS have organised Careers Launch, aimed at students, graduates, and young professionals who want to succeed within the space sector. Attendees will gather for a series of panels, talks, workshops, and mentoring on careers within the space industry.

Attendees will experience a forward thinking day aimed at their future careers and network with potential employers. Students and graduates of any subject and professionals of any discipline with an interest in space are encouraged to attend.


A full programme can be viewed here.

Talks: Talks are focused on career pathways, advice, experiences, and lessons learned.

Panel: The panel discussion is focused on the skills required to succeed in the space sector and how to develop these skills.

Workshop: A fun exercise on how to approach thinking about the future and collaborative design of new projects for research/business opportunities in/for space!

Speed mentoring: An excellent networking and mentoring opportunity. Somewhat like speed dating - groups of up to 5 students will meet a “mentor” - a professional in the space industry for 10 minutes and the conversation is up to the students and mentor. After 10 minutes, the mentors move to the next group of students.


Your ticket grants you access to the event and includes coffee, lunch, and drinks at the networking reception. It does not include travel or accommodation.

Careers Launch is being held as part of the Reinventing Space Conference at the International Convention Centre at 2 Lanyon Place, Belfast, BT1 3WH.
