A large-scale integrated system consisting of spacecraft (satellite, probe, and space station), rocket, ground systems, and communication network is required for space development, space utilization and space exploration. The scope of this course is to show element and system technologies and engineering management methodologies (systems engineering, project management, and safety and mission assurance) required for development and operations of those space systems. (The course includes control engineering, structural mechanics, electrical engineering, and communication engineering.)
The goal of this course is to achieve the capability of conceptual design of spacecraft system necessary for space mission.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to course materials and other references.
No textbook is assigned.
Necessary materials will be distributed during the lecture.
Basic knowledge of classical dynamics, differential equation, and linear algebra is desired, but not mandatory.
