The IET Satellite Communications Systems (Satcoms) Course is designed to bring new entrants into the industry up to speed with today’s technology and practice, while also to provide more established engineers with opportunity to develop and refresh their knowledge and understanding of modern satellite communications technology.

The course programme has been structured to lead the participant through each topic in a logical sequence.

The lecture sessions are complemented by a choice of industry-focussed project exercises which are undertaken in small groups so that you can apply the knowledge accumulated during the week in your workplace straight away.

IET Satcoms offers one of the most thorough technical groundings in the satellite communications engineering available in the market.
