MSc in Space Science and Technology

This qualification looks at space science and the technology that underpins it. It's suitable whether the subject interests you or you want to develop a career in the space sector. We developed this MSc in consultation with the UK Space Agency and the space industry itself. It'll equip you with the skills to carry out individual and team scientific investigations using space-based instrumentation. Learn how to use a programming language in support of space science applications. Develop skills that are relevant to further research or employment in the space sector. You'll also conduct an in?depth research project in space science or space technology.

Postgraduate Diploma in Space Science and Technology

You will need a computer with internet access to study for this qualification. For most OU qualifications a Microsoft Windows (new since 2007), Apple Mac (OS X 10.6 or later) or Linux computer should be adequate. However, some qualifications require more specific IT equipment, in which case you will need additional software to use an Apple Mac or Linux computer. A detailed technical specification for your modules will be made available when you register. Please note, technical specifications do change over time to match computer developments and the way we teach.

Literature in transition: from 1800 to the present free course icon Level

 

Literature in transition: from 1800 to the present

This module draws you into the main currents of literature from 1800 to the present day. You'll engage with some of the most stimulating literary works ever written, and track the seismic historical transitions and transformations relevant to them ? with an eye on our present and the future. Numerous major authors are offered for close critical study (Dickens, Tennyson, Woolf, T.S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, Winterson, and others), alongside exciting but relatively neglected authors. Influential literary movements and critical interventions will be discussed, while leaving ample space for your own ideas.

Remote experiments in physics and space free course icon Level

Science, Maths & Technology 

Remote experiments in physics and space

This is a practical science module with activities in astronomy, physics and planetary science. It builds on your previous study, adding a vital element of experimental work. The investigations cover aspects as diverse as quantum mechanics; properties of electrons; planetary atmospheres and surface processes; and the structure and contents of the Milky Way. You'll use remote equipment ranging from an X-ray spectrometer to an optical telescope in Tenerife or a radio telescope in Milton Keynes. You'll build your experience and expertise in practical investigation, including observation, hypothesising and reporting skills. An exciting project develops team-working skills critical to collaborative scientific enquiry.

International, environmental and space law free course icon Level

Society, Politics & Law 

International, environmental and space law

The module focuses on the institutions and governance of international, environmental and space law, and explores issues of fairness, justice, voice and the challenges that arise from the changing nature of international governance. You'll develop your understanding of the transition of international law into global governance. You'll study humanity's impact on the global and outer space environment, and the governance mechanisms designed to manage that impact. You'll also learn about what the law means for you individually and for the societies in which we live, as well as recognise where international law and policy is failing to protect the vulnerable or to enable social justice, equality, and equity in the global society.
