Successful space missions are vital to the United States and the world. If you've always dreamed of joining NASA's team, Capitol's astronautical engineering (AE) degree can help make it happen. You will learn the fundamentals of space operations and technology, flight dynamics, spacecraft design and earth science. You may also work with the NASA Space Operations Institute. There, Capitol and NASA team up to operate satellites and provide hands-on work opportunities for students.
When you graduate, you will be fully prepared to become a NASA mission specialist, create software applications and design electrical systems for space missions.
