Course content

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.

Compulsory modules include: Advanced Astronautics; Concurrent Engineering Design; Spacecraft Orbital Mechanics and Control; Spacecraft Propulsion; Spacecraft Structural Design; MSc Research Project

Optional modules include: Applications of CFD, Fuel Cells and Photovoltaic Systems I; Systems Reliability; Turbulence: Physics and Modelling; Space Environment
