Summary

We are uniquely placed to offer this programme, drawing extensively from courses provided to the European Space Agency by our Astronautics group. Learning with us you will focus on the design of all elements involved in a space mission, and use an integrated approach, which demonstrates how the various component subsystems function and interface with each other. Our course is suitable if you have previously studied physics or engineering.

This one-year advanced course draws on the international expertise of our Astronautics Research Group and content from the courses we run for the European Space Agency. The course provides an integrated approach to the design of a total space system and describes how the various component subsystems function and interface with one another, giving you advanced knowledge of space systems engineering.

The year is divided into two semesters. Each semester, you will have the option to undertake specialist space engineering modules; including spacecraft structural and engineering design and propulsion.

You will work under the guidance of world-class experts in this area and benefit from our cutting edge facilities, including an autonomous systems testbed and shaker table. You will engage in experimental study and complete a critical research project. We offer a range of potential projects, from spacecraft self-healing structures to creating your own moon orbiter.
