Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Simplified mission analysis to become familiar with the space mission, followed by the development of the requirements matrix, including all necessary requirements according to international standards. The requirements matrices produced in this part will be input for part 2 of the course in system integration for space technology.

Intended learning outcomes *

After completing course the student should be able to

  1. Demonstrate ability to, from a holistic perspective, critically, independently and creatively identify, formulate and deal with a space mission.
  2. Demonstrate ability to plan and with adequate methods create a requirements matrix for a space mission within given frames and evaluate this work.
  3. Demonstrate ability to critically and systematically integrate knowledge from previous courses to analyse, judge and deal with complex phenomena, problems and situations in spaceflight, even on the basis of limited information.
  4. Demonstrate ability to model, simulate, predict and evaluate the behaviour of spacecraft within the space mission, even on the basis of limited information.
  5. Demonstrate ability to design a space mission, including selection of technical solutions, taking into account relevant scientific, social, ethical, economic and environmental aspects, and international regulatory frameworks.
  6. Demonstrate ability for teamwork and collaboration in culturally mixed groups.
  7. Demonstrate ability to clearly present and discuss engineering conclusions and the knowledge and arguments behind them, in dialogue with different groups, orally and in writing, in international contexts.
  8. Demonstrate ability to make judgements with respect to relevant scientific, societal and ethical aspects when selecting technical solutions for a space mission.
