UK degree in space systems engineering

BAE Systems and the University of Portsmouth have launched the UK’s first-ever degree apprenticeship in Space Systems Engineering. Applications are now open for the initial intake of space degree apprentices. The new recruits will be part of exciting projects such as Azalea, which is due to launch its first multi-sensor low Earth orbit satellite cluster in 2025 to deliver intelligence in real-time to military customers.

Apprentices will learn on-the-job critical skills at BAE Systems’ sites in Alton and Guildford, including system and mission analysis, software development and electronics from some of the industry’s most talented people. At the University of Portsmouth, apprentices will undertake a BEng in Space Systems Engineering. This four and half year course will provide them with the latest skills in CAD, telecommunication systems, space science, space mission design, and materials and manufacture.
