As a student of this degree, you'll learn how to design and build nano and micro satellites, and to manufacture satellite subsystems.
You will also gain specialist knowledge in satellite operations, both within the government sector (Geoscience Australia, Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO) and within private companies such as Saber Astronautics and Space Machines. You will also discover Australia’s role as a global leader in the integration and application of space derived information such as Earth Observation data.
You will experience a wide range of learning environments – lectures, tutorials, online delivery, laboratory practicals, individual and group work. Much of your learning will be spent in the laboratory and undertaking projects, enabling you to put theory into practice.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester may include quizzes, laboratory assessments, in-class discussions and exams.
