The IIAS Professional Certificate in Bioastronautics offers a concentration in Intra-vehicular Space Suit Evaluation together with Project PoSSUM and Final Frontier Design. This credential provides the student a hands-on, immersive education that will serve as a career in human space flight and technologies related to the human adaptation to the space environment. Students learn to test spacesuits in microgravity environments, high-G environments, and landing and post-landing environments.
The IIAS Professional Credential in Bioastronautics is a 16-credit certification designed for the student or professional interested in a career in human space flight involving the design, integration, test, and qualification of technologies involving the human interface in spacecraft. IIAS offers two concentrations of study in Bioastronautics: IVA Space Suit Test and Evaluation and EVA Space Suit Test and Evaluation. These concentrations are largely independent of each other and may be taken sequentially or concurrently. Prospective applicants must have successfully competed the requirements for AST 101 (Fundamentals of Astronautics).
