Course content

The University of Surrey is at the forefront of a revolution in space, utilising new advances in technology to decrease the cost of space exploration. Surrey was the pioneer of sophisticated ‘micro-satellites’ in the 1980s and has gone on to have a sustained programme of building complete satellites, performing mission planning, working with international launch agencies and providing in-orbit operations.

Our Space Engineering programme is designed to give you the specialist multidisciplinary knowledge and skills required for a career working with space technology and its applications. Surrey students have access to all aspects of the design and delivery of spacecraft and payloads and are very attractive to companies in the space-related industries.
