The space sector is a relatively new industry in the Philippines but has shown plenty of promise. As an emerging space-faring nation, the country focuses on space education and the capacity development of young Filipino scientists and scholars. For the Philippines, there is a potential to develop young talents in space technology to address disaster management, industry development, and other sustainable development challenges.
This World Space Week, SGAC will be hosting a local webinar designed for Filipino students and aspiring space scientists and engineers on pathways to careers in the space sector. Featuring local experts and panelists who were once scholars of the Philippine Space Agency (PhilSA), the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), this webinar will be moderated by the National Point of Contact for the Philippines of the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) – Asia Pacific Region.
Recently, many Filipino students aspire to build a career in space science and engineering, and what they often want is precise information on what exactly the field entails, the related university program options to choose from, the institutes they might explore for higher education, the scholarship funding opportunities, and career prospects.
