USC Master of Science in Astronautical Engineering : Overview (video; 53 min)




Major challenge for the American space enterprise

The acute need to improve space-related education has emerged as a major challenge for the American space enterprise. At the same time, the importance of space continues to grow for national security and economy. The United States depends on space assets more than any other nation on earth and this country leads the world in exploration and utilization of space. Government, Congress, and industry have produced alarming reports on the state of the American space workforce. Whether these findings collect dust on library shelves or translate into changes depend on a concerted effort by all stakeholders, including the space industry, government, academia, and professional societies, especially the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).

Call for major changes:
