Abstract. Space weather is a new subject which has not yet become widely understood or appreciated. The University offers the unique opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding about space weather that can then be applied as graduates enter the mainstream society.

In this paper, an example of curriculum development at the Istanbul Technical University, Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronautics, for formal education related to the space environment is presented in outline.
