The approach to achieve these goals will supplement existing strengths and personnel with new expertise.
UNSW Canberra Space Research
UNSW Canberra is investing heavily to develop a sustainable university-led program to undertake research in space. A capability is being established to routinely conceptualise, develop and fly affordable responsible in-orbit missions.
In conjunction with this research, the School of Engineering and Information Technology offers two specialised Master degree programs in Space Engineering and Operations.
UNSW Canberra is playing a leading role in shaping Australia’s evolving conversation and thinking about space. UNSW Canberra’s investment in space occurs at a time in which Australia’s direction in space is beginning to crystallise, capabilities are beginning to emerge, and government policy is taking shape.
The Australian National Concurrent Design Facility will be a national asset, that will support the new Australian Space Agency’s activities to grow and mature our domestic space industry.
