CCU Space Program Internships

The CCU Space Program is excited to announce its 2024 Summer Internships. We seek four exceptional students to fill founding positions in the leadership of the Space Program’s inaugural mission, ChantSat-1. Applicants for all openings below will be considered on a competitive basis. The Space Program will select 4 winners and 4 alternates. Winners and alternates will be hired as student research assistants for about 4 weeks this Spring 2024, with the option to defer or extend that employment through summer. Then, the 4 winners or their alternates (should a winner be sick or otherwise unable to travel) will travel to the Small Satellite Conference (SmallSat 2024) in Logan, UT. Complete details of the Spring and Summer itinerary are in the table below. The 4 winners will be paid $14/hour for up to 20 hours per week based on mutual agreement. Positions will be reviewed on or before August 16, but some may continue into Fall 2024, depending on individual circumstances. Alternates will have the chance to initiate student research work and/or unpaid internships on-campus, in other positions in the Space Program this Spring and Summer.

The immersive training the CCU student will receive should aid in equipping them to take on the challenges they will encounter during the developmental/build/integrate/test phases of the inaugural ChantSat-1 CubeSat Project. 

Student Applications for the Summer are now being taken for the 4 Primary and 4 Alternate positions.
