Course Aim

The student should acquire experience in project work in spacecraft or spacecraft instrumentation or related fields.
After the course, the student shall be able to:

  • Show the ability to apply knowledge acquired in previous courses to project work.
  • Show understanding of project organization and project management. This shall be shown applying relevant tools such as time planning, resource utilization, project meetings, finances, reports and documentation of various kinds.
  • Assess the risks and issues that can occur in a project due to internal and external factors.
The student shall show an understanding of different roles, gender equality and gender issues within project implementation and show insight into and ability to work in a group with heterogeneous composition.


Introduction to project work and evaluation of proposed space projects. Organization of and preparation of documents for a Preliminary Design Review (PDR). Oral and written presentation of the PDR for clients of the project. Preparation of documents for a Critical Design Review (CDR). Every student in the project is required to be active during the presentation of the CDR, which is both written and verbal for the client. Prior to flight, the necessary tests should be carried out. After the flight, the group will present an analysis of these results as a Final Report (FR).

Each course occasion´s language and form is stated and appear on the course page on Luleå University of Technology's website.

Introduction to project management to all students who register for the course. Students will work in groups. Large groups are to be divided into sub-projects with their own project managers. The minimum number of students in a project is 3. The student project manager is responsible for implementing the project. Projects will be such that it is possible to work with a specialization in science or engineering within the same project. 

If there is a decision on special educational support, in accordance with the Guideline Student's rights and obligations at Luleå University of Technology, an adapted or alternative form of examination can be provided.

The examination is based on active participation in the project meetings, project work, and the review processes.
The course contains reports, one review process, and one presentation.
The final grade is based on the performance in all parts of the project. 


This course corresponds to the second half of P7001R .
P7005R and P7006R can be combined into a 15 credits course.
