The master program in Aerospace Control Engineering at IVT-faculty, UiT Narvik Campus provides a unique education in Norway, where you as a student will learn about the most relevant technologies necessary for design, construction, and utilization of control systems in aerospace applications. Through the two-year program, important theoretical preliminaries such as applied mathematics, digital system and signal theory, embedded systems, navigation and automatic control are covered, as well as more specialized topics on system identification, artificial intelligence, and modeling, guidance and control.

Through a multidisciplinary program, students learn the relevant methods and skills in various technological fields, with a commonality through its application in aerospace-related systems. The program involves lectured courses, as well as a high degree of problem-based education (i.e. learning by doing), where the students spend their time working on relevant projects under supervision of a highly qualified staff. The project topics are chosen from ongoing internal research projects, as well as national and international aerospace related projects that UiT participates in. Therefore, several projects has ended in results at a high international level, published in international scientific journals. The students have also been able to present their results for international audiences at scientific conferences and workshops. In the last few years, such projects have included:

Attitude determination and control system design for the European Student Earth Orbiter (ESEO) and European Student Moon Orbiter (ESMO) spacecraft under the SSETI-project initiated by the European Space Agency (ESA).

  • Development of an Aerosol detector rocket payload for collection of ionized dust particles, under the ESPRIT project by NASA.
  • Design, implementation and testing of all subsystems (ground station, power supply, data handling, control, communication and payload) in UiTs own spacecraft HiNCube.
  • Mathematical modelling, synchronization and coordinated control of small spacecraft in formation, in cooperation with internal PhD-students and supervisors.
  • Mathematical modeling, guidance and control of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), in cooperation with internal PhD-students and supervisors.

To provide a high-quality education with relevance to industry, UiT is cooperating with the national universities in Oslo (UiO), Bergen (UiB), Trondheim (NTNU), as well as European Space Agency, Norwegian Space Centre and the Norwegian Centre for Space-related Education (NAROM).

Refresher course:
In week 33 a two-days refresher course in linear algebra is offered. In this course, central concepts and methods from previous linear algebra courses will be repeated. Experiences from previous years are that students who participate in this refresher course benefit greatly from this in SMN6190 Linear Algebra II.

All teaching on this program takes place in English.

UiT has also a policy for advocating international cooperation, and several students have over the last years performed (parts of) the master project at well-known universities abroad.

Most courses are based on lectures, self-study and assignments or small projects, individually or in groups. Each 5 ECTS course usually includes 40 lectures, plus supervision time. The handouts can be voluntary or mandatory. Mandatory lab exercises are includes in some topics. Scientific theory application and analysis is emphasized in assignment and project solution. The different course descriptions provide additional information.

Form of assessment

Different assessment methods are applied through the study program. In most cases, the assessment is based on a written exam. In some cases an overall assessment is applied, combining a written exam with assignment or projects, or a final report combined with an oral exam. The different course descriptions provide additional information.

The final master thesis (diploma) will be performed in close collaboration with industry partners, and/or based on existing research and development projects. The work is usually performed individually, with regular supervisory meetings through the entire project period. The diploma will be evaluated solely on the basis of a final written report.

Mandatory safety training in health, security and environment (HSE)

All students must complete mandatory safety training before they are allowed access and given permission to work in laboratories, workshops and the like. This also goes for participation in fieldwork/research cruises and similar. Please contact your immediate supervisor for list of mandatory courses.
