About

The Advanced Master of Space Studies at KU Leuven is designed to prepare scientists to respond to a myriad of challenges and opportunities within the space sector. The large scale of space projects imposes important constraints on management and requires a truly international response with accompanying  European and international legal and political measures.

Overview

KU Leuven organises an online open day on 1 December. For more information, please visit www.kuleuven.be/online-open-day.

The space sector plays an important role in economic, social, technological and scientific developments. The future of the sector and its manifold applications require highly skilled experts with a broad interdisciplinary perspective. The development of innovative space technologies is fostered by an intense symbiosis between the technological sectors and the challenges set by fundamental research in exact and biomedical sciences. 

In the Advanced Master of Space Studies at KU Leuven you will learn, through interaction with industry, the skills necessary to compete for employment and research opportunities from among the broad applications of the space industry, including security and defence. In addition to coursework in space sciences, the curriculum is enriched by a master's thesis and a series of guest lecturers from international, national and regional institutions.

Career

Graduates will be in a position to develop a career in the space sector or in space research; taking up roles in the space industry (engineers, product developers and technical-commercial functions), research institutions with activities in space (researchers and project developers), (inter)governmental bodies with responsibilities in research and development programmes related to space (project managers and directors), policymakers on the national, European and international levels and in a broad range of companies and organisations which use or are facilitated by space missions.
