PEGASUS Student Conference 2021

Call for applications open to graduating students and graduate students after April 2020

Published on 15 December 2020

The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for PEGASUS Universities Students (i.e., students enrolled for a degree programme of PEGASUS institutions) and aerospace students of other European Universities to present technical papers in public competition for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the graduate (masters candidates only) category. The conference serves to give the students an opportunity to practice the presentation of technical work at meetings.


The fundamental objective of the conference is to provide students with an educational experience that prepares them for their future as practicing aerospace engineers. Students attend and present technical work as they would at a professional meeting. In addition, they establish professional relationships, learn from others, and improve their communication skills. Their work, both written and oral, is evaluated by professional members serving as judges, with the primary intent of providing substantial feedback on the quality of their work. The highest scoring papers are also recognized with awards.


Any PEGASUS University Student or aerospace student of other European Universities is invited to participate in the conference. Only Masters’ level student papers are accepted for competition. Ph.D. student papers are not eligible to compete for awards. Their work may be presented for review only.


The work presented should be original, not already published or presented elsewhere.
