My Objectives This is an introductory course designed to give lower division engineering students a broad overview of space science and associated engineering. Most of the treatment will be descriptive rather than quantitative. I will assume you have a firm grasp of high school mathematics and physics. Special Note for Freshmen and Sophomores interested in Aerospace Careers: I hope to get you interested in space science and associated engineering early enough to help you choose appropriate courses at the junior and senior level. Special Note for Juniors and Seniors: I hope you learn something new about space science and associated engineering that you haven’t already learned.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
