The Interdisciplinary Space Master programme at the University of Luxembourg was especially designed with this double focus in mind – a unique feature setting it apart from other courses.
Groundbreaking innovations in satellite technology, space exploration and exploitation have paved the way for a greater-than-ever commercial use of space. To thrive, the commercial space sector requires professionals able to manage both the technical and the business side of space missions and operations.
Thanks to the ISM’s interdisciplinary character and project-based learning approach, graduates obtain a solid understanding of all aspects of the space value chain, as well as space engineering expertise. The courses include systems engineering, spacecraft design, satellite communications, space missions and operations, ground segment operations, space exploration and exploitation, commercial and research operations on the Moon and near-Earth asteroids, and space resources.
The ISM’s unique approach is characterised by an innovative balance between technology and business disciplines. Graduates get the chance to develop an entrepreneurial mindset that is required to be successful in the growing space industry. Students also gain first-hand experience in the sector through their project-based final thesis, be it at the University or at a company.
