There's still time to register for the SatComs Course 2016.  Click here for further details and how to register.

The IET industry-standard course is designed to present in-depth treatment of technical topics within the context of a comprehensive overview of satellite communications. Experienced presenters provide valuable insight into both principles and practice of satcoms, with each session presented by a leading expert in their field, drawn from across industry, government and academia. The lecture sessions are complemented by a choice of project exercises undertaken in small groups during the week.  Being residential, and also by keeping the numbers limited, there is ample opportunity to interact with the presenters and tutors, as well as with other participants.

For those participants working towards a formal Engineering qualification it is worth noting that this course provides 36 CPD hours.
