In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.
Studies in engineering and technology prepare you for the technologically oriented workforce of today.
Members of the workforce with engineering and technology training are sought out by many industries including medical research and computer software development.
Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.
Situated in the province of Lapland, Kiruna city has close to 20,000 inhabitants. It is the administrative center of Kiruna municipality in Sweden. It is home to the Swedish Institute of Space Physics.

Master Program in Spacecraft Design, 120.0 Credits
This two-year program is focused on one of the most exciting and prestigious areas there are: design of spacecraft. This includes integration of complex technical systems that must work in an extreme environment: space. The course is given in Kiruna, located well north of the arctic circle. This “space capital” of Sweden gives you close contact with organizations active in space engineering.A spacecraft, which also is called a satellite if its orbit is bound to a celestial body, is designed around the payload instruments it shall carry and the environment it shall work in. During the first year of the course you acquire knowledge about the space environment, which the spacecraft shall operate in, and also how it travels and orients itself in space. You learn about the various subsystems which make up the spacecraft and how it communicates with the surrounding world. Further, you get an understanding for the specific space electronics that are required and learn how the on-board computers work. You also get an insight into typical payloads that a satellite may carry.The second year you are working with computer design of a spacecraft, fit to carry the instruments that are constructed by you and your colleagues. Here, a large part of the education and work is done in project form and as group work. Your master thesis work is performed at a space technology company, space organization, or academic department, in Kiruna or other part of the world.A space research environment, unique for Europe, has been established in Kiruna. Here you find the Swedish Institute for Space Physics. The Institute builds satellite instruments for distant travel to other planets and celestial bodies. Sounding rockets and stratospheric balloons are launched from Esrange. Their missions may concern ozone research as well as studies of the origin of universe. The international radar organization EISCAT has also one of its receiving stations in Kiruna, where they perform studies of meteors and the northern lights.The education is cooperating with these players and thus gives you the opportunity to evaluate satellite instruments with balloon flights to the stratosphere, shaking tests, and tests in a vacuum chamber.The lectures are in English....
