The value of space satellite systems, and the services that they enable,
underpin many commercial and social activities, for example providing
communications, navigation, weather forecasting, disaster mitigation and
understanding of climate change.
The economic value of the space sector is forecast to grow to £400bn by 2030 and is a key growth target in many countries, employing tens of thousands of highly skilled workers.
This course will be particularly relevant to:
The next course runs on the 24th to 28th March 2014
The course is run in London on the UCL campus
Each day runs from 09:15 to 17:45 (with an earlier finish on Friday)
The cost is £903 for those taking their first course with UCLse
(Normal module fee £1806)
Understanding the Space Sector
The purpose of the course is to provide the delegate with a broad understanding of the space sector through an exploration of the importance of the sector (socially, economically and politically) and an investigation of its relevance in the context of systems engineering
It considers the various systems involved in earth observation, science, telecommunications, navigation as well as manned spaceflight. It also looks at the applications which make use of space assets to deliver services of value to the users.
This 5 day course is one of the modules that can be taken as a stand-alone course from the MSc in Systems Engineering Management. Further information on the content of the course can be found on the Space Systems module page.
This course is taught by various members of the Technology Management Group with a mixture of academic and industrial experience. The course director is Ian Raper. Prior to joining UCL in 2012 Ian worked for 11 years at Astrium Satellites, including a two year secondment to the International Space Innovation Centre.
The course also includes sessions developed by the Satellite Applications Catapult and Astrium.
