Course summary

Design, operate and build electronic systems for the space environment. Gain the engineering skills needed for a career in the space industry. Our course takes you beyond the engineering difficulties of designing equipment for use on Earth’s surface. Instead, you'll develop the skills needed to design and build systems and platforms for the hostile environment of space. The first two years of our Electronic Engineering with Space Science and Technology courses are the same, introducing you to elements of project management, engineering processes, professional practice ethics and sustainability. It also allows you to switch between the BEng and MEng degree and decide whether you want to take a professional placement year or not up until the end of your second year.  You'll grow your understanding of electrical engineering science before specialising in electronics and communications technologies with elements of space and planetary science. Your learning will be supported by the latest theory and practice in spacecraft engineering, space electronics, Earth observation, the space environment and weather. Group and individual project work throughout the degree challenge you to develop bold ideas and apply your knowledge of engineering in creative and innovative ways. Your ability to combine professional and technical engineering knowledge will prepare you for a career in the space industry and a range of other professions. Learn from experts in the field You’ll learn from academics with expertise in electronic and electrical engineering. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.
