Course Details

Introduction to Satellites and their applications

Satellites make up a significant portion of the space industry.

Students will learn about:

  • Introduction to the design of satellite subsystems and their various applications.
  • Learn about subsystem functions and performance measures.
  • Examine the environments and interfaces that impact satellite design, including launch systems and the space environment.
  • Discuss payloads in a general sense, with specific examples to highlight the payload’s influence on the design of other subsystems.

Understanding Satellite Imagery

Satellite images are like maps: they are full of useful and interesting information, provided you have a key.

They can show us how much a city has changed, how well our crops are growing, where a fire is burning, or when a storm is coming. 

To unlock the rich information in a satellite image, you will first need to understand what exactly they are looking at! 

This module will teach students to identify the scale of a satellite image, look for patterns, shapes, and textures, and define colours and shadows, among others.

Space Entrepreneurship

In the last 50 years, the space sector changed dramatically. 

With the introduction and development of new technology, space business models have become economically viable for the first time ever. 

This trillion-dollar industry is expected to grow exponentially in the next decades, providing numerous opportunities to entrepreneurs and businesses looking to be a part of this ecosystem. 

In this course, students will learn about the new space economy, its key drivers and trends, and some of its most important business activities, such as launch, remote sensing, satellite communication, and the possibility of space tourism.
