Under the aegis of the Federal University of Toulouse, TBS participates in the creation of the European Space University of Earth & Humanity, a project launched by the European Commission under the name UNIVERSEH.
The UNIVERSEH project
European Space University of Earth and Humanity
The European Space University of Earth and Humanity or UNIVERSEH project aims to create a university of reference for the space sector in the European Union. The project combines the expertise of recognized players in aerospace education to align key teaching and research skills with the needs of the job market and stimulate the industry, employment as well as increase sustainability in the space sector. With a global budget of 6.6 million euros over a 3-year period, the Toulouse consortium will benefit from a 3.3-million-euro contribution to bring this project to life.
Combined expertise in space education
To build this unique university in Europe, the UNIVERSEH project combines the expertise of the Federal University in Toulouse (Université Fédérale de Toulouse) in France, the University of Luxemburg (Luxemburg), Heinrich-Heine-Universität in Düsseldorf (Germany), Luleå Tekniska Universitet in Sweden and the University of Science and Technology of Krakow in Poland.
Spotlight on the Toulouse area
The Federal University of Toulouse coordinates the project, with the participation of five local members, which are all recognized for their specific know-how and academic excellence in the field: Université Toulouse Jean Jaurès, Université Paul Sabatier Toulouse III, Toulouse -INP, ISAE-Supaéro and TBS. All institutions involved are educational flagships from the European capital of Aerospace.
“TBS’s participation in this international and multidisciplinary project will contribute to the valorization of our differentiating expertise in the fields of aerospace, entrepreneurship and CSR. It also vouches for our capacity to contribute to the international development and reach of our territory.”
Stéphanie LAVIGNE, Dean of TBS Education
Cover all job aspects in the space sector
The European Space University of Earth and Humanity project aims to train future space sector employees, collaborators and entrepreneurs across Europe by combining science, engineering, economics, social science & humanities, patents & innovation, science & medicine, arts & culture… in order to cover all aspects of this highly evolving sector.
Innovative approaches to teaching
The UNIVERSEH project also aims to develop innovative approaches to teaching and a common European culture by sharing skills and best practices and by favoring mutilingualism.
Erasmus+ student exchanges
Supported by Erasmus+, the UNIVERSEH project attaches great importance to the European and international dimension and promotes student and staff mobility between the different partner universities in France, Luxemburg, Germany, Sweden and Poland.
After a period of 3 years of preparation which will run until 2023, UNIVERSEH will be able to offer a full study program of 24 courses that students will follow by carrying out mobility in several partner institutions of the project.
The Horizon 2020 “Beyond UNIVERSEH” project will complement and support the Research and Innovation dimension of the European University UNIVERSEH. Beyond UNIVERSEH’s main ambition is to develop and propose a research policy roadmap for 2035 and a vision for 2050 within the space sector.
TBS, expertise in space management
Firmly anchored in its local aerospace territory, TBS has a long history in educating managers for the sector, with programs that are tailored to the needs of today’s companies, such as the MSc Aerospace Management, which received the CGE quality label from the French Conférence des Grandes Ecoles and the Aerospace MBA, the only MBA degree in Aerospace Management that holds the AMBA accreditation since 2002.
TBS also provides other aerospace programs, such as the Bachelor in Aviation Management (in partnership with ENAC), short executive education programs, such as the Space Business & Applications specialized track and even custom-designed programs. TBS also participates in ENAC’s MS Management of Air Transportation.
All these programs are taught under the umbrella of the Aerospace & Mobility Center of Excellence, which actively supports research in the field, as is shown by TBS’s participation in the SIRIUS Chair, an innovative private-public partnership between TBS, Université Toulouse 1 Capitole, the CNES research center, Airbus Defense & Space and Thales Alenia Space.
