Having a national space agency is inevitable. This is the belief that the Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) holds into as they mold local talents in the field of space science through its activities under the Philippine Space Science Education Program (PSSEP).
The PSSEP, which began way back in 2004, aims to create awareness among students on career opportunities in space science to address skill shortages and industry needs. With the recent efforts and developments in the establishment of a Philippine space program, the PSSEP’s role has become vital as ever.
“Space is not a luxury anymore. It is now a necessity for a country to dwell in space related matters. Every nation benefits from space technologies that’s why the Philippines should inevitably pursue space efforts for its own development,” said Dr. Rogel Mari Sese who heads the National Space Development Program (NSDP and the PSSEP.
