Meritvärdering och urval baseras på examensinriktning och kursinnehåll avseende kvalitet och kvantitet

Erasmus Mundus Master Course in Space Science and Technology - SpaceMaster provides top-class research and professional oriented modules in space science and technology for students from the whole world. The educational cooperation is supported by scientific and industrial space organisations, thus providing direct contacts with professional research and industry.

Students receive Master Diploma certificates from two European universities.
The Course Consortium consists of six European universities, two Third-Country universities and five associated members.

European universities:

  • Luleå University of Technology, Sweden (LTU)

  • Julius-Maximilians Universität Würzburg, Germany (JMUW)

  • Cranfield University, UK(CU)

  • Aalto University, Finland (AALTO)

  • CzechTechnical University, Prague, Czech Republic (CTU)

  • Université Paul Sabatier-Toulouse III, France (UPS)

Third-Country universities:

  • The University of Tokyo, Graduate School of Science, Japan (UT)

  • Utah State University, USA(USU)

Associated members:

  • Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF)

  • Swedish Space Corporation (SSC)

  • EISCAT (European Incoherent Scatter) Scientific Association (EISCAT)

  • Honeywell International s.r.o.

  • European Aeronautics Defence and Space Company, Innovation Works Division (EADS)

During two years of full time studies the students obtain cross-disciplinary theoretical knowledge and practical skills by using the available space scientific facilities such as satellites, rockets, landers, stratospheric balloons, radar systems, robots and space instruments.

The Course has a common first year for all students. The first semester takes place at JMUW. The second semester takes place at LTU. During the third semester the students are distributed among the six European universities. During the forth semester the students perform their Master thesis projects at six European universities, two Third-Country universities and associate members.The thesis work is strongly connected to the current research and performs usually in collaboration with the space industry.

The Erasmus Mundus scholarships from EACEA are available for EU and non-EU students. The Erasmus mobility grants are available during the second year. Additional scholarships are available from the Swedish Institute.

The Course is given in English.

Var kan jag jobba?

The graduated students have wide and deep competence and therefore are ready to  work within the modern and most technologically advanced areas: fundamental space research, space technology and engineering, applied engineering and electronics. The added value of the SpaceMaster Course compared with other courses in the same field can be summarised as:

  •  structured cooperation between the academic institutions and industry;
  •  the education is influenced by current advances in research and develpoment;
  •  increased intercultural understanding and integration;
  • a wide range of specializationsthat improves career prospects of students;
  • international network after the graduation;
  • promotion of the join research projects.

    SpaceMaster students work today at ESTEC-ESA, SSC, EADS, Astrium, DLR, Volvo Aero, LKAB, European universities and space companies around the world.
