About the course

"The IET Satcoms course was really great as content and knowledge transferred, but it was also the result of fantastic organisational work!”

“Great idea having these projects! Allows you to put it all together on a practical project and on a team basis.

“Fantastic course - so much hard work but rewarding. Thanks to all, particularly the course organiser who did a good job. Thank you.

“As an electronic engineer returning to a technical leadership role, the IET satellite communications course provided me with an excellent introduction to SATCOM technologies, and terminology. I would thoroughly recommend the course for any engineers or managers entering this complex and challenging domain.”
