Summer intern network

SHY intern network

SHY runs an annual summer intern network. Any students doing research placements related to Space are welcome to be part of the network. These internships can be either industry placements or academic.

This programme includes a welcome event event, weekly networking coffees, talks about academia and industry, a social event and finishes with the intern showcase.

The SHY Intern showcase will be held on Tuesday 17th August 2021. All are welcome to come and hear the projects that the interns have been doing.
