At SSC we think it is essential to have a close relationship with the engineers of the future

We work hard to inspire and raise interest for the space industry at an early age to encourage young people to choose Engineering as a profession. Each year we visit primary schools and high schools and offer paid internships via Tekniksprånget for young people who have recently completed their upper secondary school.

We also visit colleges, universities and welcome students to do their Master Thesis at SSC. This relationship provides students with an excellent opportunity to put theory into practice, while at the same time gaining insights into SSC’s operations.



As a student, you have the opportunity to do your Master Thesis at SSC.

Each year we welcome students to perform their Master Thesis at SSC. An internship for a Master Thesis is a way for students to obtain valuable contacts within the business world, improve their resumé and contribute to the continued development of our company.

Please find our vacant internships under Job Opportunities. Apply by registering your CV and a cover letter in which you specify why you are suitable for the job, and why you would like to work at SSC.

You can subscribe to be notified when a new internship is added. Please go to Job Opportunities.



Test life as a space engineer. We offer you four months paid internship.

Rocket and Balloon Experiments for University Students

The REXUS/BEXUS programme allows students from universities and higher education colleges across Europe to carry out scientific and technological experiments on research rockets and balloons. Each year, two rockets and two balloons are launched from SSC's launching facility Esrange Space Center, carrying up to 20 experiments designed and built by student teams.

REXUS/BEXUS student programme

The REXUS/BEXUS programme is realized under a bilateral Agency Agreement between the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Swedish National Space Agency (SNSA). The Swedish share of the payload is made available to students from other European countries through the collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA).

Experts from DLR, SSC, ZARM and ESA provide technical support to the student teams throughout the project. EuroLaunch, the cooperation between the Esrange Space Center of SSC and the Mobile Rocket Base (MORABA) of DLR, is responsible for the campaign management and operations of the launch vehicles.
