The division has two research groups. The Onboard Space Systems group in Kiruna, and the Atmospheric Science Group with branches in Luleå and Kiruna.

The department offers engineering programs and several master's programs. We give students extensive theoretical knowledge and practical skills in aeronautics, space physics, and atmosphere physics.

The programs work with several of Sweden's foremost players in the aerospace industry such as the Institute of Space Physics, EISCAT Scientific Association, and SSC, which gives an insight into Swedish and international space research and opportunities to participate in satellite, rocket, and straospheric ballon projects.

The environment of space campus is highly international, with students and researchers from all continents.
