Course content

The night sky presents us with the idea of infinity, and advances in space engineering lead the way in giving us the opportunity to go further and explore more than ever before.

At Surrey, we pioneered sophisticated ‘micro-satellites’ in the 1980s. Since then, we’ve maintained a programme of building entire satellites, performing mission planning, working with international launch agencies and providing in-orbit operations, keeping us at the forefront of the space revolution.

Our strategic partnership agreements with Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd and Airbus ensure we continue to be part of the lifeblood in the UK’s industrial space sector.

Our MSc in Space Engineering is designed to give you the specialist multidisciplinary knowledge and skills required for a career working with space technologies. You’ll have access to all aspects of the design and delivery of spacecraft and payloads.

We’re the only UK academic institution that develops and executes complete space missions – from initial concept to hardware design, manufacturing and testing, to in-orbit operations (controlled by our own spacecraft mission operation ground station at Surrey Space Centre). Because of this, you’ll have the chance to gain your own first-hand experience of real space missions.
