Master of Science in Earth Oriented Space Science and Technology (ESPACE) Technical University of Munich




Course info


The Master’s degree program in Earth Oriented Space Science and Technology (ESPACE) is an interdisciplinary program positioned at the interface between space technology and the engineering and natural scientific use of satellite data. It is conducted as a two year master's degree program with the option of a Double Degree in cooperation with the Wuhan University, China. ESPACE combines the technical aspects of the satellite and observation systems with scientific and commercial applications. This requires interdisciplinary knowledge beyond the borders of different engineering disciplines such as geodesy, mechanical and electrical engineering, as well as physics, informatics and geosciences.

The goal of the ESPACE Master’s degree program is to train students to become experts in the use and development of satellites in the three main areas of earth system science, remote sensing and navigation. Students acquire fundamental knowledge and competencies in these three fields as a general basis, as well as the interfaces among them in order to be able to link technological know-how with practical application. They simultaneously learn the necessary basics of signal processing, sensor technology, orbital mechanics and space technology, so that they are in a position to help plan and develop future missions for the above-mentioned areas.

By including numerous scientific institutes and the space industry in the teaching concept, ESPACE makes full use of the potential of excellent scientists, offering also the opportunity of dedicated project work and Master’s theses in close co-operation with, and in many cases even at the location of these institutions. Thus the students become involved in current projects, state-of-the-art technology and science, and daily practice.

As a graduate with a M.Sc. in ESPACE you are qualified to start a career in international aerospace agencies as well as national or international research institutes or universities. Further possibilities are offered by the aerospace technology industry and generally by companies in the area of navigation and logistics or security-related applications.
