Master of Science in Space Science and Technology Luleå University of Technology



Course info


The joint Master Program in Space Science and Technology – Space Master, is based on the previous Erasmus Mundus education and is arranged in cooperation between LTU and leading European space universities.

Space Master offers wide experience ranging from cross-disciplinary laboratory and computer simulation environments to concrete situations such as experiments with balloons, rockets, and satellites. The first year is common for all students and takes place at LTU, Kiruna Space Campus. In the second year you will study at one of the partner universities, which have different fields of expertise in space science and technology. During the fourth semester students perform their Master thesis projects.


During the first year of the program you will acquire knowledge about physical processes in planetary and interplanetary environments; spacecraft orbits, attitudes, subsystems and communication aspects; space borne scientific instrumentation and polar atmosphere phenomena.

Based on your choice, merits, and place availability you will then, during the second year, further your studies within one of the specialisms offered by our planned partner universities:

Dynamics and Control of Systems and Structures - Canfield University,

Space Automation and Control - Czech Technical University in Prague,

Space Technique and Instrumentation; or Astrophysics, Space Science and Planetology - University Toulouse III - Paul Sabatier,

Atmospheric and Space Science; or Space Technology and Instrumentation - Luleå University of Technology.

Education in Sweden is free of charge for students from within the EU/EEA and Switzerland. However, participation in the program will incur other costs such as accommodation expenses, living allowance, travel costs, and tuition fees as applicable at respective international partner university. The students are solely liable to finding their own financial means to cover these and other costs associated with participation in this program.

Labour market

The main advantage of Space Master is ‘broadened horizons’. Our alumni work with space research, technology and engineering. They are employed by international space organizations, companies and research organization, e.g. the European Space Agency, French Space Agency, German Space Agency, Airbus, OHB Sweden and Swedish Institute of Space Physics. The education is an excellent foundation for students aiming at an academic research career.
