What is it like having a space career?

Having a space career is great! Working within the space industry means that you are working within an innovative, challenging, and intelligent environment.

As a space engineer, you are likely to get involved in a variety of space projects. Depending on your field of expertise, your tasks can range from telecommunications and satellite network design to flight software development and from research and data analysis to thermal or mechanical testing of space equipment.

Working within the space sector in a non-engineering relating position can be quite different, but equally exciting. Roles in administration, finance, IT, data science, or cybersecurity can be critical and success-defining for space programmes. Within those roles, you will be providing administrative or technical support, conduct research, or manage any financial aspects of programmes in order to ensure project continuity and mission success.
