This Postgraduate Certificate is designed for engineering professionals who are interested in developing their careers into systems engineering or project management roles in the space domain.
Students will develop a powerful set of skills and knowledge about space systems and gain awareness and understanding of the economic and organisational context within which space sytems are developed including the limitations these can impose. Depending on the modules chosen, students may focus more on business, project management, reliability or design aspects.
Students undertake modules to the value of 60 credits.
The programme consists of four taught modules of 15 credits each.
Students must take Space Systems (15 credits) and either three from the list below or two from the list below and one optional module.
Teaching and learning
The programme consists of four taught modules, each of which is delivered as a five-day block week consisting of a blend of interactive lectures, small-group exercises and presentations, case studies and workshop activity. Formative feedback is given to students throughout the modules. Modules are formally assessed through coursework to be completed a few weeks after the module, and for some modules there is also a short test or a 1.5 hour written examination.
Further information on modules and degree structure is available on the department website: Space Systems Engineering PG Cert

Students who have studied this subject have found employment in aerospace, defence, communications, rail, construction, engineering, IT, management consultancy and many other areas.
Systems engineering is a highly sought-after expertise, particularly in engineering and technology-based organisations.
The programme's industrial advisory board ensures that the subjects students learn about cover the key issues faced by industry.
The programme combines interactive lectures, group exercises and case studies to reinforce key points. Lecturers are experts in the field, many of whom have engaged in the practice of systems engineering in industry, and all of whom oversee research across a broad range of subjects relating to systems engineering, project management and technology management.
Students with this degree will gain the skills, knowledege and confidence to further their careers. They will be able to build their professional contacts with like-minded individuals from different organisations.
On completion of the 60-credit programme, students may choose to apply to transfer their credit towards a 120-credit Postgraduate Diploma or a 180-credit MSc in Systems Engineering Management.
The MSc in Systems Engineering Management (which students may choose to go on to study on successful completion of this Postgraduate Certificate) is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
