MSSL has today opened its first office outside of the UK at UCL's campus, Victoria Square, Adelaide. MSSL's Director, Professor Alan Smith was there to be part of the opening and also to be present at UCL's first ever degree ceremony abroad. The MSSL presence will augment the existing UCL School of Energy and Resources (whose students graduated) and the UCL International Energy Policy Institute. MSSL in Australia will focus on both providing engineering management training and education and also work with Australian industry and academia in the development of technology both for space and terrestrial applications.

Professor Smith said 'the development of space technology requires many skills in science, engineering and management. We plan to make our expertise in these areas available to Australian academic and industry sectors through education, training and collaborative R&D programmes. I see many interesting possibilities for MSSL in Australia and have been encouraged by the level of interest from researchers who are willing to collaborate. There has also been positive discussions with a variety of levels of government on the prospects for extensions into a range of sectors".
