Specific teaching objectives

The Postgraduate Degree Course in Space and Astronautical Engineering equips the student with advanced disciplinary and professional trainingand specific engineering skills, enabling them to address complex problems that require the use of modern methods of analysis, design, simulation, and optimisation. The course also provides an appropriate level of expertise in basic space access technologies, the utilisation of terrestrial orbits, and space exploration, with particular reference to the systemic and scientific aspects of launch vehicles, interplanetary missions by astronautical vehicles, and manned space missions.

The student learns to use the most advanced investigative and design tools for innovation in the space industry, e.g. improving the performance of launch systems to reduce the cost of entry into orbit per unit mass of payload, payload mass reduction (for platforms, sensors, and power units) and increasing the efficiency and utilisation of the available on-board power. These areas of investigation are re-elaborated in relation to a human crew, placing particular emphasis on life support technologies and systems in space.

In terms of methodologies and applications, in the two-year Postgraduate Degree Course these capabilities build on the solid basic preparation previously acquired in the degree course, and take them further.

Admission requirements
