The SpaceVision conference is almost as old as SEDS itself, bringing together students of many disciplines from all corners of the country to celebrate their shared passion for all things space. Building on the tradition started in 1989 amongst the first SEDS chapters, this gathering includes panels of industry leaders, technical project competitions, and opportunities for our members to engage with current professionals from across the space sector. The growth of the conference in recent years parallels SEDS’ own remarkable expansion while preserving the original focus on creating student connections and empowering everyone to pursue a future in space.
Each year university chapters compete for the honor of hosting SpaceVision and are selected by the council of chapters. Submitted proposals include initial plans, potential guests, and an overall theme that highlights the university chapter. SpaceVision is a great way to showcase your school and your members, and the next hosts to be chosen could be you!
SpaceVision provides students the unique opportunity to learn directly from industry professionals, leaders, and influencers about the state and future of the industry. Additionally, it provides SEDS members the opportunity to not only network and connect with these individuals in an intimate environment, it also allows them to participate in a career fair, which hosts many aerospace companies, designed specifically for SEDS students. During thse career fairs, many students are able to receive valuable feedback on their resumes from hiring managers as well as obtain internships and/or job offers.
