Education

The Aerospace Corporation has a longstanding dedication to education. The Aerospace Institute offers opportunities for both our employees and our customers to expand their knowledge through a wide variety of courses related to our work in support of national security space efforts. The corporation sponsors a number of technical workshops each year designed as educational resources for space professionals, including the Space Power Workshop, the Ground System Architectures Workshop, the Aerospace Testing Seminar, and the Mission Assurance Improvement Workshop.

In addition, Aerospace is strongly committed to inspiring the next generation of engineers and scientists by supporting science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) projects and programs in a number of ways.

One of the company’s primary goals is to provide volunteer role models to demonstrate the value of a strong emphasis in science and math education.  Students who excel in math and science are often unaware of the exciting career opportunities available to them. Our employees enhance the image of those exciting careers by working directly with K-12 students,  supporting science and math teachers, and  partnering with local schools to support STEM outreach programs.
