官网 吕勒奥理工大学

A space research environment, unique for Europe, has been established in Kiruna. Here you find the Swedish Institute for Space Physics, which builds satellite instruments for distant travel to other planets. Sounding rockets and stratospheric balloons are launched from Esrange. The university has developed a laboratory environment for nanosatellites within the research subject Onboard Space Systems and is developing a Mars-laboratory within the research subject Atmospheric Science. The lectures are in English and guest speakers from the aerospace industry and academia participate.

Description

A spacecraft, which also is called a satellite if its orbit is bound to a celestial body, is designed around the payload instruments it shall carry and the environment it shall function in. You learn about the various subsystems which make up the spacecraft and how it communicates with the surrounding world. Furthermore, you get an understanding for the specific space electronics and typical space materials that are required and learn how the on-board computers and the propulsion work.
During Spring term in the second year you are initiating a project work that will continue during the second year Autumn term. In this you will in collaboration with other students physically build some instrument that maybe will be launched with rocket or a high altitude baloon to the stratosphere. You will also work on a computer design of a spacecraft in collaboration with other students during the second year Autumn term.
Your master thesis work is performed at a space technology company, space organization, or academic department, in Kiruna or other parts of the world.

Labour market

There is a shortage of engineers within the space industry in the western hemisphere. Space activity is often to a high degree international. Some of the major European space players are ESA and EADS/Astrium. In Sweden major players are SSC, OHB Sweden AB, RUAG Space AB, and Omnisys Instruments.

Entry requirements

Successful completion of a basic engineering program or a Bachelor´s degree with a minimum of 180 ECTS in the areas of space technology, aerospace, aeronautics, mechatronics, space physics, physics, electronics, mechanics or equivalent. Course work at university level must include electronics or mechanics, and a minimum of 22.5 ECTS in mathematics at university level is required. Course work must include linear algebra, multivariable calculus and ordinary differential equations.
