The satellite industry is constantly affected by changes in technology, regulations and investments. In recent years, there has been a major shift from the massive and costly hundred million-dollar traditional satellites to the more cost effective Smallsats. Moreover; almost 126 satellites were launched in 2018 resulting in a 53% rise in launches in the last 5 years. With so many developments happening in the industry, it is important to stay ahead of the game!

Join us as we explore the fundamentals of link budgets; spacecraft and earth hardware design & engineering including. antennas; payload and earth station engineering; networks and system design, current commercial and military use as well as likely future trends. The course also features a choice of industry-focussed project exercises that offer the most thorough technical groundings in satellite communications engineering available in the market.
