Tentatively 15 March for the following winter semester, but please check our applications page for the current deadline:
Our programme in Satellite Technology, chosen and supported by the Elite Network of Bavaria, focuses on interdisciplinary space systems engineering skills. The objective of SaTec is training of students for the realisation of space missions through its interdisciplinary curriculum in close cooperation with nearly all Bavarian space organisations in academia, research and industry. During their studies, students participate in interesting space research projects. Currently, the Würzburg space ecosystem, which is composed of universities, research institutes and companies, operates nine of its own satellites in orbit and implements 30 small satellites to be launched in the next years. Thus, Würzburg is THE top research location in Europe for small satellites. SaTec emphasises on electronics and computer science methods compared to traditional mechanical engineering. Related adaptive space systems are very much in demand in research and industry environments. The course contents and research projects focus on space systems engineering skills and include interdisciplinary fields, e.g. space dynamics, attitude and orbit control, computer science, robotics, telecommunication, remote sensing, electrical and mechanical engineering, control engineering and more.
