NASA Student Design Challenge

NASA Glenn Research Center has been researching and developing innovative technologies in both aeronautics and space flight for 75 years. As an opportunity to further involve undergraduate students, NASA Glenn is hosting a spring 2017 University Student Design Challenge (USDC), with aeronautics and space themes.

The aeronautics component of the USDC is open to teams of full-time, sophomore-through-senior-year undergraduate students in accredited U.S. academic institutions. In case of mainly senior-year students, a team of such students may use the opportunity as a one-semester Capstone project, if so approved by the affected institution. The space project has already reached its full complement. All aero and space teams are encouraged to be multidisciplinary, with mostly science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors. However, the team formation may comprise students majoring in areas such as economics, marketing, graphic arts, or other non-STEM disciplines which will aid in the success of the design challenge. Each university or college team will have, at least, one faculty advisor, as well as, access to technical experts at Glenn. Continue reading

NASA Summer 2017 Internships for Students with Disabilities

NASA is looking to increase the number of students with disabilities pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers through our regular internship programs. This is not a program for students with disabilities.  We are trying to recruit more students with disabilities into our regular internship programs. Disability means both physical and mental disabilities. NASA has a two-percent hiring goal for employment of people with disabilities and internships are a good way to get experience. However, this is not an employment program. Continue reading
