Welcome! to the Nineteenth Asian semifinal & the Sixth Indian National (2022-23)

Year 2043

The Foundation Society seeks proposals to design and build the first space settlement to establish large-scale industrial operations in cis-lunar space.

This contest puts high school students in the shoes of aerospace industry engineers designing a city in space that will be a home for over 10,000 people.

Each year the Competition organizers develop a new design concept with its own special requirements. Contest teams work together to create a 40-page report (see samples from index) that addresses the issues and communicates their ideas and designs.

ATTENTION: Given the situation due to COVID-19 pandemic the live competitions will most likely be hosted virtually. As we get closer to the event, more details will be made available to the qualified teams.

The prize: Sixteen finalist teams from around the world are selected to compete with a new scenario in a live Competition at NASA Kennedy Space Center in Florida, with real engineers sharing their knowledge and experience in both engineering and management.

Chinese National Competition

Due to contract violations, and lack of transparency and honesty on part of ITCCC, and despite several warnings and opportunities to correct their action, it has been decided that ITCCC will no longer be a part of the ISSDC family.


Guangzhou PeiSheng Education Media Co.Ltd. (PAISON), is the new organisation authorized to offer the Chinese National Space Settlement Design Competition, and to bring students to the Asian Semifinals, and eventually to the International Finals.

Teams from Pakistan

To enable teams from Pakistan to participate in the Space Settlement Design Competitions, this year, school teams from Pakistan can qualify to the Chinese Competition through the Asian qualifying round.


Teams from Pakistan should register for the qualifying round. More information will be shared with registered teams. Interested teams should contact Mr. Khalil Akhtar at bosaal@yahoo.com for registration guidelines and support.

This competition focuses on taking you through 36 years of legacy and an educational product that is developed entirely by engineers. Unlike most educators, we believe that young high school students can learn almost anything given the right tools.

And this tool by far is the best for teaching you Management skills and real-time industry skills that most people spend decades to learn in the industry while on the job.

You need not be a whiz-kid, academically very successful or brilliant in physics and mathematics to do well in this competition. The focus of the competition is to discover the hunger in you to learn
and excel.This is a real team building exercise and according to most participants it is the most rewarding experience
