  • 4. Enhancing Engineering research Graduate
    Student Research Program at JSC
  • My special thanks to Dr.Bill Garrad, Diane
    DeTroye, Pat Hynes and staff of the N M Space
    Grant Consortium for this opportunity to present
    at this meeting.

SEED and Systems Engineering Workshop
  • Systems Engineering Education Discovery project
    (SEED) (sponsored by ESMD) is designed to sow
    the seeds of SE during undergraduate education.
    Students will have opportunities to participate
    in SE focused internships, propose reduced
    gravity flight experiments and take part in the
    SE workshop.

5
SEED and Systems Engineering Workshop
  • Systems Engineering Education workshop
  • Purpose
  • To disseminate an undergraduate systems
    engineering curriculum to interested universities
    operating within NASAs Space Grant Consortia.
  • To discuss effectiveness of the pilot systems
    engineering activities at The University of Texas
    at Austin.
  • Place Johnson Space Center
  • Date August, 2008? - open for discussion
  • Workshop Length 1.5 days
  • Organized by Texas Space Grant Consortium in
    collaboration with JSC

  • Topics included in curriculum
  • Outline of class materials and assignments
  • Resources available as part of curriculum
  • Feedback regarding pilot teaching of class,
    Spring 08 at UT-Austin
  • Content review and validation of undergraduate
    systems engineering curriculum by external faculty

Day 1 - morning, 2 hours
8
Systems Engineering Workshop Draft Agenda
  • Panel / Roundtable Opportunities

    systems engineering efforts at their
    universities, both undergraduate and graduate

Day 1 - afternoon, 3 hours

Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunity Program
  • Program Successes (1997-2007)
  • 46 states have participated in the RGSFOP plus DC
    and Puerto Rico. The four states that have yet to
    participate are Alaska, Delaware, Maine, and
    Nebraska.
  • 2,409 Student Flyers
  • 158 Institutions / 551 Teams Flown

11
Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunity Program
  • 2007 Space Grant Partners Participation
  • Of the 31 teams in 2007, 27 from member
    institutions of Space Grant Consortiums (nearly
    87)
  • 10 University teams lead their Space Grant
    Consortiums
  • 14 teams requested funding from their Space
    Grants Consortiums
  • The Space Grant Consortiums are already making a
    difference in the Reduced Gravity Program.
    However, there may be a way to get the
    individual states more directly involved in this
    opportunity

12
Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunity Program
  • Possible Partnership
  • A flight week for 10 teams of four flyers.
  • Four flight days.
  • Each experiment flies twice and each team
    member would receive one flight
  • Approximate cost for a full flight week 160k
  • Example
  • 10 State Space Grant Consortiums to partner cost
    per state would only be 16.

  • Additional opportunities for students sponsored
    by
  • Space Grant to spend Fall or Spring or Summer
    working at JSC ( Fall/Spring recommended)
