Our expertise isn’t just confined to planet Earth. Every year since 1967, an instrument designed or built by our scientists has operated successfully in space, forming part of ground-breaking missions to expand – and sometimes fundamentally change – our knowledge of the universe. As we look to better understand our solar system, our research continues to break new ground, informing Europe’s first mission to Mercury. Our expert academics and links with the Space Research Centre will deliver the advanced theory and practical skills needed to advance your career in this exhilarating and fast-paced industry.

Whether you choose to study full time on campus, or part time via distance learning, through your studies and independent research you will acquire the advanced skills and knowledge to pursue your passion and enhance your career options.
