The two most northern universities in Sweden, Lulea University of Technology and Umea University have formed a joint Department of Space Science located in Kiruna. The department is responsible for programmes covering a wide spectrum, practically oriented and more theoretical, leading to Bachelor's and Master's degrees in space engineering. In addition the universities have graduate education in space and atmospheric physics and space technology. Recent developments include the award by the European Commission of funding for an Erasmus Mundus Space Master Course, which is a cooperative project with five other European universities and an expansion of the department's summer programme to include a course in manned space flight.
