Space Systems Engineering, a new massive open online course or MOOC from NASA and the Saylor Foundation, launches on Monday, March 3, 2014. The six-week general-audience course is available to the public at no cost and provides a unique opportunity to learn from and alongside NASA’s engineers. Students who participate can earn a free certificate.
The course examines basic systems engineering and teamwork as well as project life cycle, scoping, requirements, and trade studies. Foundation staff contributed technical, audio-video, and instructional design support, while course content consists of existing and augmented NASA materials.
Video lectures from personnel supporting the James Webb Space Telescope and the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite missions at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., form the backbone of the lessons. NASA project manager Jeff Volosin, NASA mission systems engineer Mike Menzel, and Nobel Laureate Dr. John C. Mather will provide the lectures.
