Course Information

Communication in Space explores the world of ways we currently communicate in space, and will provide students with opportunities to unpack the links between the mining industry and space, robotics, AI and automation.

Explore the world of remote operation centres and how they are utilised as the nerve centre for a range of industries, particularly space exploration. You will research how these centres are used and investigate some of the problems they face, particularly in relation to how they control systems and machinery remotely, and what processes for problem solving they need to have in place when the technology breaks down.

If you are interested this course will provide students with the opportunity to work independently and in teams to develop solutions for problems facing the space industry, and you will undertake a range of excursions to deepen your contextual knowledge about communication in Space and future technologies.
