Courses are planned, coordinated and implemented by the partner universities of the Alliance. They take place on the campuses of the institutions in Toulouse, Luxembourg, Düsseldorf, Kraków, Lulea and Kiruna. You can attend the courses in person, distant or blended. To access a course, you should send an email to the responsible coordinator mentioned in the course description.

The courses are typically delivered in English as well as in other languages such as French, German, Polish and Swedish.

As an UNIVERSEH student, you will have the opportunity to combine courses across Universities and access foreign language classes in a multilingual environment.

* Recognition of  ECTS credits as part of your study programme depends on the policies and procedures of each UNIVERSEH member university. For more information about the policy on credit recognition, please contact the UNIVERSEH Team at your home university.

Past courses

The course “Critical Outer Space Studies“ will explore the complex field of study that is the science and exploration of outer space through a variety of disciplinary lenses such as environmentalism, posthuman studies, mobility studies, astroethics, or postcolonial studies.
Participating students will have the unique opportunity to engage with the work of leading scholars and scientists in all of these fields through seminar sessions and their discussions of texts, films, reports and other material, as well as via the accompanying Lecture Series.
The course curriculum includes two field trips to HHU Düsseldorf and Université Toulouse -Jean Jaurès for the first and final sessions of class, respectively, which will be fully funded for enrolled students.

The course provides a wide insight into neural network (NN) algorithms and their hardware implementation. The development of NN applications is typically carried out using GPUs and requires a long calculation time. The course gives participants the ability to accelerate and shorten inferring latency using dedicated hardware with limited resources. Although this idea can be adopted in many different applications from many disciplines, the course demonstrates practical examples from space-related research projects. The main goal is to motivate, illustrate, and experience the impact of Machine Language (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the space sector.

Besides the emphasis on creating practical design on the available hardware platforms, the course presents a survey of commercially available (and recently introduced by leading manufacturers) systems for hardware implementation of neural algorithms. A survey of dedicated processors with neural architectures currently being developed is also covered.

Another fascinating subject in the course concerns emerging technologies dedicated to future hardware neuromorphic systems currently in the R&D stage.

The huge innovation potential of ML is strongly emphasised during the course. Practical examples of innovative projects are presented to illustrate the impact of ML and AI in business activity.

Hybrid Lecture Series open to non-specialists

March 28th and April 13th 2023

Join the UNIVERSEH’s space crew and take a ride to discover the perspectives around this passionate theme, proposed by specialists from different fields of science.

UNIVERSEH invites you to the multidisciplinary conference cycle: "Sustainability and Space Sector". Whether it is in the field of launch vehicles, the sustainability of the earth as seen from space, sustainability in critical space studies, or ethical issues related to space debris, there are many interpretations.

The Sustainability and Space Sector: Multidisciplinary Lecture Series, open to non-specialists, will be held live and online from the Université Toulouse Jean Jaures.

Please find below the lectures and here the links to the registration forms.
