Welcome to the Centre for Space Research at RMC. The mission is to create an environment to promote active space research programs and thereby provide support for Space Science and other space-related degree programs and activities.
The Physics department at the Royal Military College of Canada offers
BSc, MSc and PhD programs with specialization in Space Science.
At RMC, students study theoretical, experimental and observational aspects of Space Science. This includes but is not limited to space mission analysis, mission and payload design, remote sensing, satellite tracking, ionospheric physics and space weather, and astronomy and astrophysics.
Additionally, RMC pursues research in the field of Space Science, including space surveillance and satellite tracking, astronomy and astrophysics, ionospheric physics and space weather, and payload and mission design for Nanosatellites.
