About the course

The night sky presents us with the idea of infinity, and advances in space engineering lead the way in giving us the opportunity to go further and explore more than ever before.

At Surrey, we pioneered sophisticated ‘micro-satellites’ in the 1980s. Since then, we’ve maintained a programme of building entire satellites, performing mission planning, working with international launch agencies and providing in-orbit operations, keeping us at the forefront of the space revolution.

Our strategic partnership agreements with Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd and Airbus ensure that we continue to be part of the lifeblood in the UK’s industrial space sector.

Student Profile(s)

Christos Merkouris

"I studied at the University of Surrey in 2010, and am now a Spacecraft Verification and Test Engineer at the European Space Research & Technology Centre in the Netherlands.

"I was drawn to study here because of the very good reputation of the Surrey Space Centre; I was convinced it was the best option for me. Also, the flexibility and support of the University staff was a plus, enabling me to study for my MSc alongside a full-time job.

"Taking the programme was hard work and a lot of fun. I flew in every Thursday evening from my home country to participate in meetings and lectures. The course was diverse and thorough, covering most aspects of the space engineering industry and I gained a better understanding of the subject by the time I finished – significantly increasing my confidence at work.

"My time at Surrey helped me learn how to cope with responsibility, as well as manage my time effectively and prioritise tasks in order to complete things. I had the opportunity to work on a conceptual and feasibility study for a future space mission: the idea of developing concepts and designing a space mission based on latest technological missions, with the possibility that it might materialise, still puts a big smile on my face. Surrey Space Centre’s impressive links with the space industry provide you with unique opportunities to get involved with real projects.

"To anyone considering further study in electronic engineering, I’d say you obviously need basic knowledge and skills in the field but also that you need to have patience and be flexible. The thing that will make you stand out is originality and being yourself."
