Students who choose to pursue studies in space can find jobs with NASA or companies who focus on satellites and technologies that tie into this expansive field. In fact, even cellular and other satellite based companies are seeking out new employees to assist with the planning and development of space-based products and services.
To train students for these and many other related careers, community colleges offer space-related courses of study, including pathways that incorporate engineering, physics, and math. Also, to improve current programs, many community colleges are collaborating with NASA to create curriculum and courses to prepare students for futures in space studies. Today, community colleges are establishing both new and revised programs to address the interests of science and exploratory students.
