In 1970s, the education and training activity came into being with the development of China Academy of Space Technology (CAST). During the past, over 40 years moving forward, CAST education and training has been developed from zero to one, to even better, and has cultivated lots of backbones and talents for Chinese aerospace industry. Shenzhou Institute (CSI) was founded in 2005 by CAST which is subordinated to Chinese Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC), which symbolised the business of CAST education and training started to be specialized and professional. As the first enterprise university in Chinese Aerospace industry, CSI follows closely with the Chinese aerospace development, and sets up a complete and systemized operation standards and regulations, and builds a scientific education and training system covering all aspects of aerospace technology. During 12 years’ development, CSI has become a well-renowned space institute and selected as one the National Top Ten Enterprise University.
CSI has developed a mature training product system for customer training, which consist of various training modules ranging from satellite development and manufacturing to launching, including space basics, system and subsystem design, AIT, in-orbit operation and application. CSI has trained more than 1100 talents for over 20 countries in space technology and management, considerably facilitating space development in those countries.
CAST started to receive the first postgraduate student in 1978. Up to now, CSI has developed 7 post-doctoral research centers and work stations, 48 authorized major programs at master and doctorate levels. CSI became the only national authorized institute to conduct international education in space sector on Nov. 27th, 2016, which symbolized CSI can recruit overseas students pursuing master and PH D in astronautics, communication and control technology. By offering a Chinese official and professional academic education, CSI can cultivate high-level space talents with strong technical background; furthermore, they can have a better understanding of Chinese history and culture.
