Kennedy Space Center (KSC) is looking for training partners for its Rocket University program, which is a personnel development effort designed to grow and maintain flight systems engineering skills and expertise through coursework, hands-on application, and practice. Founded in 2011 by two NASA engineers, the program serves to fill knowledge gaps and develop the workforce as the agency transitions to new programs such Commercial Crew and Orion. The program covers a range of engineering disciplines including avionics/embedded systems, flight dynamics, flight structures, liquid propulsion, solid propulsion, and systems engineering.
KSC’s Rocket U program has several NASA partners including NASA Headquarters, Johnson Space Center, Marshall Space Flight Center, Goddard Space Flight Center, Glenn Research Center, NASA Engineering Safety Center, Wallops Flight Facility, and APPEL. In addition to its agency partners, KSC Rocket U collaborates with academic institutions such as the University of Central Florida, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Virginia Technical University, San Diego University and external partners including the 45th Space Wing, Space Florida, and the Florida Space Institute.
If your organization is interested in partnering with NASA KSC to support this training and development program, contact us to explore options.
