In today's space related enterprises, change is the only constant. To fully utilize existing opportunities and explore new ones within a modern space-centric enterprise, it is crucial to have both the technical knowledge necessary to design cutting edge space missions and associated products, as well as the systems knowledge that is required to operate in an increasingly complex technical, business and policy environment. At Stevens, the graduate certificate in space systems engineering and the master's degree in either space systems engineering or systems engineering with a concentration in space systems allows professionals working in government and the private space-related enterprises to combine robust technical education in space systems design and development, and key space systems processes, with a holistic understanding of systems engineering principles.
