About the Course

Want to be part of a new era in space exploration? Ever thought about launching satellites into orbit, conducting science on the moon or a mission to Mars? Today Australia needs skilled specialists to work in a rapidly growing space industry that is worth AU$495 billion. Opportunities exist for you. RMIT will help fill this gap by training the next generation of highly capable graduates who will become leaders in space science. There is substantial government and industry investment in space science technology that highlights this growing gap in skills, both in Australia and internationally. Graduates will need critical skills in space science and technology, connecting the upstream space (build/launch) and downstream (application of space-related products and services) industries. This degree encompasses our space industry and space agency partnerships with government and industry. These include connections with Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Electro Optic Systems, Department of Defence, Geoscience Australia and space agencies around the world such as USA (NASA), Japan, (JAXA), Europe (ESA) and Germany(DLR) Additional facilities at RMIT include the SPACE Research Centre and the Sir Lawrence Wackett Centre.
