    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ACADEMIC YEAR 2020/21

    The Master in Space Engineering will be taught ON CAMPUS. The schedule will be published shortly under the “Practical Information” tab.
    Exceptionally, students must attend in a Synchronous Online Teaching system the sessions that may be determined to ensure the prevention and social distancing measures in classrooms. All students must have the necessary equipment to follow classes remotely (device with internet connection and webcam. See Student’s Guide). Due to the restrictions in the use of computer rooms on Campus it may be necessary to take your own computer equipment for its use in the classroom.
    UC3M has a laptop loan program for students who need it.

    The Master of Space Engineering provides the comprehensive and specialized training required by the space industry. This is a booming sector with growth in Europe and Spain of almost 10% per year in the last decade. The labor market of this industry is dynamic, with a high demand for master-level graduates in engineering, in particular, from the areas of aerospace and telecommunications.

    The Master's program in Space Engineering responds to the international, integral, and multidisciplinary nature of the space projects and missions according to three vectors. First, the teaching of the master's degree is entirely in English. Second, it provides a complete training in design and systems engineering with a teaching methodology aimed at the development of space projects. Third, the key topics in space technologies and applications are covered theoretically and practically. These includes both the space vehicle, understood as the platform on which different subsystems are integrated, and its orbital and attitude dynamics, as well as the disciplines related to control, communications, data transmission, as well as the most relevant technological applications.

    The UC3M has the appropriate means to provide the necessary multidisciplinary training, through the Departments involved in the fields of Aerospace, Telecommunications, Computer Science, Automation, etc. Finally, it has been established a close collaboration with the industrial sector for both lecturing and internships.

  • SC PREDESIGN

    Spacecraft Pre-Design Competition

    Spacecraft Pre-Design is a synthesis course that students must follow in the last bimester of the first year.

    The main goal of the course is integrating students’ knowledge and skills acquired and developed in the previous terms to the preliminary design of a space mission. Students’ teams are given high-level mission requirements from a client and they must come out with the mission requirements, system engineering and project management of the first stage of the project.

    The designs proposed by the student teams are evaluated by a multi-disciplinary panel. The best designs of each year are listed here.

     

    1ST EDITION. SPRING 2020

    MISSION: TEPEU

    The TEPEU-1 space mission aims to fly a low-cost satellite to LEO for the purposes of technological demonstration, as well as Earth’s ionosphere and geomagnetic field measurements, paving the way for future scientific studies about the ionosphere and its relationship with space weather. The mission is promoted by several Mexican institutions (IPN, ICAT-UCAM, CG-UNAM).
