The Aerospace Control Engineering Masters Program provides students with specific skills necessary to model, design, and control the dynamic behaviour of aerospace systems, including fixed-wing UAVs, rotorcrafts and satellites.
The master program is suitable for students with the interest in learning, developing, and applying state-of-the-art control technology for aerospace-related purposes. The type of technology has also large similarities with technologies for extreme environments, such as in arctic regions and subsea, and students with interest in development of technologies in such fields will find this program as relevant.

Programme description

The master program in Aerospace Control Engineering at IVT-faculty, UiT Narvik Campus provides a unique education in Norway, where you as a student will learn about the most relevant technologies necessary for design, construction, and utilization of control systems in aerospace applications. Through the two-year program, important theoretical preliminaries such as applied mathematics, digital system and signal theory, embedded systems, navigation and automatic control are covered, as well as more specialized topics on system identification, artificial intelligence, and modeling, guidance and control.

Through a multidisciplinary program, students learn the relevant methods and skills in various technological fields, with a commonality through its application in aerospace-related systems. The program involves lectured courses, as well as a high degree of problem-based education (i.e. learning by doing), where the students spend their time working on relevant projects under supervision of a highly qualified staff. The project topics are chosen from ongoing internal research projects, as well as national and international aerospace related projects that UiT participates in. Therefore, several projects has ended in results at a high international level, published in international scientific journals. The students have also been able to present their results for international audiences at scientific conferences and workshops. In the last few years, such projects have included:

Attitude determination and control system design for the European Student Earth Orbiter (ESEO) and European Student Moon Orbiter (ESMO) spacecraft under the SSETI-project initiated by the European Space Agency (ESA).

  • Development of an Aerosol detector rocket payload for collection of ionized dust particles, under the ESPRIT project by NASA.
  • Design, implementation and testing of all subsystems (ground station, power supply, data handling, control, communication and payload) in UiTs own spacecraft HiNCube.
  • Mathematical modelling, synchronization and coordinated control of small spacecraft in formation, in cooperation with internal PhD-students and supervisors.
  • Mathematical modeling, guidance and control of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), in cooperation with internal PhD-students and supervisors.

To provide a high-quality education with relevance to industry, UiT is cooperating with the national universities in Oslo (UiO), Bergen (UiB), Trondheim (NTNU), as well as European Space Agency, Norwegian Space Centre and the Norwegian Centre for Space-related Education (NAROM).

Admission requirements

To be applicable for the master program in Aerospace Control Engineering (Satellite Engineering), you must have a relevant undergraduate bachelor in engineering, primarily within electronics or space technology, but it may also be within related fields such as automatic control, communications, power electronics or computer science. You must however have a sufficient background in electronics and communications.

There is also a requirement of 30 points with preliminaries in mathematics/statistics, equivalent to the Norwegian courses Mathematics 1, 2, and 3, as well as Statistics.

Knowledge in Physics (7,5 – 10 ects) on a higher level is recommended to be able to follow different courses on the master programme. Some of the courses in the bachelor programme have a certain amount of physics included and can be accepted.

Applicants from Norway or Nordic countries:

– The application deadline for Norwegian and other Nordic applicants is April 15th for admission to the autumn semester

Applicants from outside the Nordic countries:

– The application deadline for applicants outside the Nordic countries is December 1st for admission to the autumn semester.
