ABOUT SPACE AT NORTHUMBRIA

Northumbria conducts world-class research in multiple areas of space research, and we are looking for excellent people to join us. Space is, by definition, an interdisciplinary topic. To understand and exploit the space environment, technology must be developed and placed in orbit. We need to combine multiple fields – both engineering (electrical, mechanical, information technology, communications, power, propulsion, aerospace), and science (physics, chemistry, biology, materials, artificial intelligence) to develop novel technologies. This novel space technology is used for and by humans; with space applications in our natural environment, human society, biology, economy, law, politics, and the arts. You can find out more on our Space research webpages.

Northumbria is creating a world-leading £50 million space skills research and technology centre in the North East of England after major funding awards were confirmed from the UK Space Agency and global aerospace giant, Lockheed Martin. This £50 million project is leading to the development of the North East Space Skills and Technology Centre, to be known as NESST. Located in the heart of Northumbria University’s Newcastle city campus, NESST will be a new national space asset that brings together industry and academia to collaborate on internationally significant space research and technological developments. NESST will put the UK at the forefront of research and innovation in areas including optical satellite communications, space weather and space-based energy, and will lead the way in providing specialist education and training to ensure the UK space sector has the highly skilled workers it needs in the future. NESST is expected to support the creation of over 350 jobs and inject over £260 million into the North East economy over the next 30 years, playing a critical role in the government’s levelling-up agenda and immediately becoming a catalyst for the wider development of the UK space sector in the North East region. In other words, NESST is set to fundamentally transform the UK space industry.
