In collaboration with staff from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, we are thrilled to present a free, online, six-week course in Space Systems Engineering.
[Edit September 2020: This course originally ran in the spring of 2014. The course materials are still available on our legacy courses site.
- Lectures from NASA project manager Jeff Volosin, NASA mission systems engineer Mike Menzel, and Nobel Laureate Dr. John C. Mather
- Google+ Hangouts with NASA personnel; the first, with Jeff Volosin, will be held on Friday, March. 7
- Free certificate of completion
- Optional project — winners of the project competition get a chance to tour NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. as well as participation in a Google+ Hangout with the instructors of the course.
About the Project
SSE101 is the culmination of months of work and collaboration between staff at the Saylor Academy headquarters and staff at NASA Goddard. The course is a step outside of our usual bill of fare, which tends to offer asynchronous courses located within a larger academic or professional development content (hey, vive la différence). We are excited to meet existing students and many new ones and to help a fantastic space agency connect with curious people around the world.
