SpaceCraft makes it easier for organisations to create space-flight equipment and conduct space experiments, and enables students and companies to develop practical engineering skills.
Our technical facilities are available for smaller companies to collaborate and make space-related prototypes.
Dedicated space engineers
We have dedicated space engineers to help regional companies, institutions and colleges with early design, development and prototyping of innovative new space projects.
Developing new, hands-on training courses in practical space engineering skills, techniques and processes - helping to tackle the regional and national shortage of skilled space technicians and engineers.
Our space engineers
SpaceCraft has two dedicated space engineers to provide resource to kick-start work with regional companies, institutions and colleges. Groups looking to create innovative new space projects can work with our space engineers who will provide support with early design, development and prototyping.
Our space engineers will act as a conduit to better connect companies venturing into the space sector with existing specialised assembly and test facilities, not just at Surrey but at other companies in the Space South Central region such as Airbus, SSTL and In-Space Missions.
SpaceCraft is developing new training courses in practical space engineering skills, techniques and processes. These courses will spread knowledge about how to build and test space equipment and instruments.
The University of Surrey has several decades of experience in providing space-related training and running practical hands-on projects with students. This approach will now be extended to local further education colleges so they can add practical space skills to their student training.
We are funded by the UK Space Agency and the University of Surrey through our regional space cluster, Space South Central.
