The LDE minor ‘Space Missions’: Where Challenging science and innovative engineering come together

14 september 2022

What does our universe look like and how is it formed? Can we detect life forms on other planets? How can we monitor pollution and climate change? Space missions are key to answering these fundamental questions. It all starts with curiosity and the science that drives these missions and is feasible in terms of engineering.

 

 

About the minor

The new minor Space Missions is a crash course into science carried out with satellites and the underlying technology, concluding with a mission assignment carried out in a multidisciplinary field. Students will obtain insight in the science carried out from space as well as the design of associated instrumentation and spacecraft. Through theory and challenge-based mission assignments performed in teams, they will experience the interdisciplinary relationship between the engineering and scientific domain of spaceflight. 

 

The missions will be provided and supported by professionals in the space sector (ESA, SRON, etc.) and guided by academic tutors from both the scientific and engineering field.

 

About the Space for Science and Society programme

Together with the Leiden Delft Erasmus Universities, NL Space Campus collaborates in the LDE Space for Science and Society programme. The main objective of this programme is to stimulate space related knowledge exchange and education, between the LDE universities as well as ESA ESTEC, the Galileo Reference Centre (GRC), SRON, TNO, KNMI and other organisations in the Dutch space sector. The LDE NL Space Campus Summer School is also part of the collaboration with LDE Universities in the Space for Science and Society Programme. 

 

Join the minor

The minor is open to bachelor students of these universities with a solid foundation in mathematics. Read more about the programme in the study guide of the coordinating university for this minor. You can register for this minor via the standard registration procedure for minors at your own university.
