Attention Prospective AY 2017-2018 Students: Please refer to educational program information on the Admissions webpage for information related to the next academic year.
Skoltech educates students to a holistic view of space missions, including space engineering and space science, and enables hands-on experience in space engineering by providing research opportunities for the development of state-of-the-art payloads and instrumentation, to be flown on partner spacecraft and as experiments on board the International Space Station.
Curriculum components cover space systems engineering, satellite engineering, space instrument design, space science, as well as human space flight, automation/robotics, and space physiology and medicine, and the entrepreneurship, innovation, and commercialization of space-related technologies.
The pilot M.Sc. program was launched in fall 2014. Students in this first cohort will have an important voice in shaping the learning experience.
The Space program areas listed above lend themselves to interdisciplinary study and cross-area research. Consequently, they may be offered jointly with Skoltech’s Biomedical, Energy, Advanced Manufacturing, and Information Science and Technology programs. As Skoltech’s research centers become established, some of the crosscutting research related to Skoltech’s Space Science and Technology program may include:
