USC Astronautics and Space Technology Program: From Humble Beginning to New Academic Unit

The Astronautics and Space Technology Division (http://astronautics.usc.edu) of the University of Southern California (USC) offers today a full set of undergraduate and graduate degree programs in astronautical engineering. The program focuses on the needs of the space industry and government research and development centers and covers main areas of spacecraft technology. Many graduate courses are taught by adjunct faculty who are top experts working in the space industry. The Master of Science degree and Graduate Certificate are available through the USC Distance Education Network (DEN), reaching students anywhere in the world through webcasting. We describe the origin and academic focus of the program that was recently reorganized as an independent academic unit in the USC Viterbi School of Engineering. Target Audience: 2-4 Year College Faculty/Administrators
