A Training Course in Space Engineering

  • for Student and Professional seeking a career in Space

Satellite Research Centre (SaRC) offers a space related course on

  • Satellite Technology and Space Mission Design EE7913 
This course introduces satellite technologies and space mission design at a fundamental level. This course will introduce the topic of spacecraft mission design and the principles governing the design process to achieve mission success to engineering students.

Students who are interested in space system, not only the flight segments, but also space application such as communication, imaging, navigation, information, etc., should take the course.

The Satellite Research Centre is starting a student CubeSat project in 2023/2024 with expected launch by end of 2025. Selected students from the course may have an opportunity to work on a real space mission. The students who want to work in the space sector will gain the comprehensive knowledge on the satellite technology.

The course consists of modules:
  • Basic orbital dynamics
  • The space environment, its effect on spacecraft and environmental testing
  • Different subsystems of a spacecraft
  • Space mission design

Students can also participate in SaRC various programmes such as:
  • Design Innovation Programmes
  • 20 weeks Internship Programmes
  • Final Year Project
These programmes expose to student to the practical aspect of design and development of spacecraft and the various upstream and downstream application. 
Refer to SaRC photo gallery for the various space activities in NTU.
