CPD Course on Fundamentals of Space Mission Analysis and Design

Vitrociset presents the second edition of the International Training Course on Space Mission Analysis and Design. This course, part of the Continuing Professional Development programme, is organised by the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow (UK), one of the European centres of excellence for research and development in the eld of space systems engineering.

This course offers specialised training through formal learning on all aspects of space mission design and operations, and is directed to people working in the space sector, with a background in engineering sciences, mathematics or physics, who need to acquire basic skills and knowledge in space mission design, and at experienced engineers or spacecraft operators, specialised in one particular area of expertise, who need to acquire a system level understanding of the overall space mission.
Vitrociset and the University of Strathclyde believe in this educational project, recognised at national and international levels. It is an intensive, full-time course consisting of 16 modules that cover the main aspects of the design of a space mission, delivered by an experienced teaching team from academia and industry, including experts from Vitrociset.
