Module overview

Concurrent Space Systems Design builds on the understanding and knowledge gained from the Astronautics modules in years 2 and semester 1 in year 3. You will learn how to place those “building blocks” of space engineering into the context of a group spacecraft design project.

In the taught portion, you will learn about industrial systems engineering processes, the standards that govern space systems engineering, as well as experiment design for system validation and space systems security to make your mission cyber secure.

Parallel to that you will work in small groups to develop all relevant subsystems for a spacecraft in a mission of your own choosing following best industry practices and design principles for space systems engineering.
