The Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL) is based in the Surrey Hills near Dorking and has been developing cutting-edge space research and space technology for over 50 years. MSSL contains the UCL Department for Space and Climate Physics, which runs five MSc courses, some in conjunction with the UCL Centre for Systems Engineering (UCLse) and other UCL institutions. 

Our MSc programmes are designed to provide students with a sound knowledge of the underlying techniques and principles that form a thorough basis for careers in space technology, satellite communications and related fields. 

If you join us at UCL you will develop insights into the techniques used in current space missions and have the opportunity through project work to gain in-depth experience of a particular specialised area. You will also learn what it is like to be a member of a research team and acquire the skills necessary to work as an effective and productive member of a team.
