Space Engineering

**Why choose this course** We are already exploring the final frontier, and we will be visiting it even more in the future. 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 even further and do even more. At Surrey, we pioneered sophisticated 'micro-satellites' in the 1980s. Since then, we have 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 that we continue to form a part of the lifeblood in the UK's industrial space sector. **What you will study** 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 will have access to all aspects of the design and delivery of spacecraft and payloads. We are the only UK academic institution that develops and executes complete space missions - from initial concept to hardware design, manufacturing, testing and to in-orbit operations (controlled by our own spacecraft mission operation ground station at Surrey Space Centre). Because of this, you will have the chance to gain your own first-hand experience of real space missions.
