The University is uniquely placed to offer this programme, drawing extensively from courses provided to the European Space Agency by our Astronautics group. Suitable for physics and engineering graduates, it focuses on the design of all elements involved in a space mission, using an integrated approach which demonstrates how the various component subsystems function and interface with each other.
Compulsory modules: Spacecraft Systems and Design; Concurrent Engineering Design; Spacecraft Engineering Design; Spacecraft Orbital Mechanics and Control; Spacecraft Propulsion; Spacecraft Structural Design; MSc Research Project
Optional modules: Finite Element Analysis in Solid Mechanics; Fuel Cells and Photovoltaic Systems I; Design Search and Optimisation; Avionics
