Presentations & Case Studies


A NASA-sponsored workshop was held in fall 2008 at the Johnson Space Center. This workshop was the initial effort at exporting the pilot systems engineering course to interested academics. The workshop also enabled a discussion on NASA's need for future systems engineers and the many opportunities to introduce the topic to undergraduates - from the pilot course materials to NASA internships to NASA systems engineering paper competitions. The workshop was attended by faculty from over 30 national universities. The workshop focused on discussing the SE course content and delivery as well as the UT Department of Aerospace Engineering perspective.

The following briefings were presented at the workshop:
