Division of Space technology

The division conducts education and research in the fields of aeronautics, space and atmospheric science.

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 department's research group studies the atmosphere and climate system using satellite instruments. Research is conducted in four areas: radiation balance, humidity and clouds, new satellite sensors and in-situ measurements of cloud microphysics.

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