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 conventional 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.Your first two years develop 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.You’ll have opportunities to put what you learn in lectures into practice through project work. Group and individual projects give you the chance to work on specialist topics such as systems-level designs for satellites and planetary landers. You’ll apply business, teamwork and management skills to solve industry-focused engineering challenges. Your ability to combine professional and technical engineering knowledge will prepare you for a career in the space industry.Our MEng degrees give you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work and fulfil the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.TeachingYou’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.FacilitiesYou'll have access to facilities specially equipped for your degree. Our laboratories are designed to be similar to industrial workspaces so you gain an insight into what it is like to work in a professional environment. These include laboratories for autonomous systems, robotics, tomography, bioelectronics, superconductivity and power electronics. We also have facilities for opto- and nano-electronics, additive manufacturing, printed circuit board prototyping and a mechanical workshop.Watch our video to see the facilities you'll use as part of your degree.CareersWe work with industrial partners to make sure our course content reflects the needs of engineering industries worldwide. You’ll graduate with the technical expertise and transferable skills that will open up employment opportunities for you. You can pursue a career in high-technology industries in electronics, power, aerospace, communications, robotics or manufacturing. Or you could find employment in other sectors such as IT, financial services, accountancy, the armed forces or business. Many of our graduates continue their studies to pursue an academic or research career.
