Montpellier University Space Centre: CSUM

Montpellier University’s technology platform

The Montpellier University Space Centre has been developing nanosatellites since 2012.

The complete development of nanosatellites is done by students, during their internships and study projects, and supervised by academics, interacting with industry.

Thanks to the Foundation and the Space Center, the Montpellier University has federated companies and students to create a dynamic ecosystem in the regional nanospatial sector.
