Explore the Technical & Strategic Forces that Influence the Space Domain
From GPS and banking to environmental and emergency management, space systems play an ever-increasing role in our daily lives. UNSW Canberra is home to the largest space capability in the country and our Graduate Certificate in Space Operations will provide you with a high level of understanding of the issues associated with the planning, operation and acquisition of space systems within the rapidly changing global space sector.
The program analyses the intersection between the technical and strategic forces that influence operational decisions within the space domain and explores the changing landscape for the utilisation of space for military, civilian, and commercial applications. A specific emphasis is placed on examining opportunities for Australia to grow its strategic space capability while responsibly operating within the space domain to ensure the sustainment of the space environment into the future.
