Description of the module

The module teaches the basics and methods for the design of satellites. All segments of a space mission are covered and in particular the design of subsystems is dealt with in depth. The students should be able to design and develop all subsystems of a satellite bus and the satellite system, i.e. the connection of the satellite bus with the payload.


  • Planning of a satellite mission

  • Derivation of requirements for satellite design

  • Design concepts and satellite types

  • Subsystem design

  • System integration design

  • System engineering

  • System verification planning
