Master of Engineering - Space Systems Engineering

Master of Engineering - Space Systems Engineering

The Master of Engineering in Space Systems Engineering program requires a total of 30 credits and is managed in partnership with Teaching Science and Technology, Inc. (TSTI.)

In today's space related enterprises, change is the only constant. From market and technological changes to policy and budgetary uncertainty, the space industry has been faced with increasing challenges that transcend technical boundaries. To fully utilize existing opportunities, and explore new ones within a modern space centric enterprise, it is crucial to have both the technical knowledge necessary to design cutting edge space missions and associated products, as well as, the systems knowledge that is required to operate in an increasingly complex technical, business, and policy environment.
