The Surrey Space Centre is a world leading Centre of Excellence in Space Engineering. Our mission is to create and disseminate knowledge that leads and underpins the progress of space engineering and its applications in the space sector, and to maintain our leadership in cost effective space engineering.
With a host of expert academics the Surrey Space Centre offers the ideal research environment for the next generation of space scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs.
Spacecraft technology requires a broad range of backgrounds from Physics and Engineering to Mathematics and Software systems, this broad range is reflected in our research groups.
As pioneers of modern "Small Satellites" since 1979, we have taken part in numerous missions.
Take a look at the exceptional people that work at the Surrey Space Centre.
Our cutting edge research facilities built up within SSC together with the Electronic Engineering department, Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, and our research contracts in the UK, EU, and across the world.
Starting in 1979, pioneering small satellite activities, the Surrey Space Centre has gone on to push the bounderies of low cost small satellite applications and generated leading research.
The University of Surrey is set to lead the country’s efforts in breakthrough, space-focused artificial intelligence and robotics research, thanks to a new multi-million pound hub.
The Surrey Space Centre has won funding from the European Space Agency to explore icy water on the moon – which could be a vital resource for manned lunar missions in the future.
