Why choose
this course?

The night sky presents us with the idea of infinity, and advances in space engineering give us the opportunity to go further and explore more than ever before.

At Surrey, we pioneered sophisticated ‘micro-satellites’ in the 1980s. Since then, we’ve maintained a programme of building entire satellites, performing mission planning, working with international launch agencies and providing in-orbit operations. This activity keeps us at the forefront of the space revolution.

With Surrey Space Centre on our campus, and our strategic partnership agreements with Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd and Airbus, we are part of the lifeblood of the UK’s industrial space sector.
