Overview

The Space Science degree from the RMIT University Key Facts:

Want to be part of a new era in space exploration? Ever thought about launching satellites into orbit, conducting science on the moon or a mission to Mars? Today Australia needs skilled specialists to work in a rapidly growing space industry that is worth AU$495 billion. Opportunities exist for you. RMIT University will help fill this gap by training the next generation of highly capable graduates who will become leaders in space science.
