The programme is ideal for those eager to leverage their engineering expertise or professional experience to explore new avenues in the emerging space sector.
Space Technology is at the forefront of innovation and has a significant impact on many fields. Space Technology is essential to a broad range of applications in both the commercial and scientific sectors, from communication to earth monitoring, weather forecasting, defence and military applications, planetary exploration and many more.
The current state of space technology in India has seen remarkable achievements - from the Mars Orbiter Mission, Chandrayaan - 3 and Aditya L1 to deploying nearly 104 satellites in a single flight.
With more than 190 private players in the Space Industry in India, it is boosting the value chain of the economy. This, in turn, has generated the demand for highly skilled space technology professionals.
To embrace the innovation and help professionals gear up for this transition, the Centre for Continuing Education, IISc Bangalore, in collaboration with TalenSprint, has launched the Advanced Level Certification Programme in Space Technologies.
The programme will be taught by renowned IISc Faculties bearing academic accreditation from top institutions worldwide and ISRO Scientists. Meet you faculty here
The programme will be delivered in an interactive online format, retaining effectiveness while maintaining safety. The format uniquely combines the benefits of an in-class programme with the flexibility and safety of online learning.

ipearl.ai (Interactive Platform for Experiential and Remote Learning) is created by TalentSprint’s engineering team led by our Chief Technology Officer, an IIT Kanpur alumni. The platform integrates best-in-class open-source technologies and SaaS services and perfected them over the last seven years.
When this platform was built, we intended to offer it to our partners and customers for digital learning and delivery. Since 2013, the platform has been extensively used by IIM Calcutta, IIT Kanpur, IIIT Hyderabad, and IIT Hyderabad, and many more of our customers and partners. More than 300,000 students have used this platform, which is reputed for user experience, quality, and scale.
This feature-rich platform has become so popular that some of our partners now use it for their academic needs.
A comparative study of iPearl.ai against Canvas, Impartus, Moodle, Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom was conducted. Features in the following categories were compared:
Do not worry. If you miss a session, you will be given access to view the recorded version soon.
The Advanced Certification Programme in Space Technologies will be delivered by IISc’s Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) in collaboration with TalentSprint. CCE offers courses suitably designed to meet the requirements of various target groups - aspiring research scientists, graduate engineers, and young professionals, enabling them to grow into competent managers of technology-intensive organizations.
