NASA is to hold courses for its employees, contractors and university students to ensure their knowledge is passed on to the next generation of engineers.

Fifteen key areas, including flight sciences, robotic flight operations and systems engineering, will be covered in the courses, held on US university campuses during the rest of this year.

NASA is running the courses – known as the NASA Engineering and Safety Centre (NESC) Academy – in partnership with the National Institute of Aerospace. The aim is to ensure the knowledge of experienced staff is effectively conveyed to current and future NASA engineers.

“NESC Academy presents an outstanding opportunity to pass on lessons learned and best practices from seasoned NASA experts to the current and future NASA workforce,” says Dr Marcia Gibson, NESC Academy programme director.
