Program Description:

The aim of the Master of Science Program ESPACE (Earth oriented space science and technology) is to produce future satellite application engineers. Students in the program gain a fundamental knowledge in space engineering and specialize in satellite applications related to navigation, remote sensing and Earth system science. This combination of disciplines distinguishes ESPACE from other Master’s programs in related fields. ESPACE benefits from Munich’s concentration of expertise related to space science and technology. The program is coordinated at the Technische Universität München (TUM) with excellent teaching staff from

  • 3 universities (TUM, Ludwig-Maximilian University and the University of the Federal Armed Forces)
  • Research institutions (German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the German Geodetic Research Institute (DGFI)
  • Space industry (such as EADS Deutschland GmbH and Kayser-Threde GmbH)

    Students who successfully complete the program receive an M.Sc. (Master of Science) degree. ESPACE alumni can be best described as satellite application engineers, now working or doing PhD studies in national space agencies
