Being focused on the Engineering of the Space Systems for Exploration and Development, the SEEDS Master Course is perfectly phased with the National, European and International projects on Exploration such as the ESA Aurora Programme and the NASA Constellation Programme (see www.esa.int and www.nasa.gov).

SEEDS looks at the major European Space Agencies and Companies involved in Exploration projects, such as the European Space Agency (ESA), the Italian, German and French Space Agencies (ASI, DLR and CNES), the ASTRIUM, Thales Alenia Space, OHB Systems Companies/the EADS, Thales Alenia Space, OHB Companies and other establishments. These organizations are strongly interested to the Master initiative because its main focus is on the training of engineering resources oriented to the specific Exploration system products, prepared to work in an international context and trained on the job by using modern and company oriented engineering methodologies.

It is expected that the students successfully completing the SEEDS courses and associated Project Works will be employed by the partner organizations at the proper level in their Engineering Teams working on the Space Exploration projects. The employment rates of the graduates from the two first SEEDS editions (the only ones concluded at present, the third being still running) confirm these expectations: 13 graduates (out of 15) from the 2005/06 edition and all the 11 graduates from the 2006/07 edition are presently working on space activities.
