Nice workplace for its multi-linguistic collaboration and nice breakthrough space missions for industry and science
Analysis of an optical system for cosmology (Former Employee) – Villafranca del Castillo (near Madrid) – October 30, 2013
I liked working at this place for the motivating research carried out on-place and for the very nice natural medium where this center of the ESA is located. This point can also be seen as a disadvantage as the connection with common transport is not easy...
Then, it is a stimulating place where people from all over Europe and invited speakers from other continents sometimes. The traineeship I realized there was interesting and all the other trainees I knew during my six months period enjoyed their stay and work project.
Many activities can be led ther eat ESAC in club to participate in small groups for thepratice of music, yoga, amateur astronomy (led on-place by professionals of course !), sword fencing among others...
There I learnt more to work with simulation/conception softwares for design and analysis, some important points of radioastronomy and general techniques.
motivating missions, multi-linguistic teams, nice frame of work among the hills and mountains surrounding Madrid
not easy connection with the city by common transport
