Career Awareness and Workforce Development

The Space Foundation works diligently to inspire tomorrow's explorers, engineers and scientists at all education levels. We support, promote and conduct education activities for undergraduate students, college graduates and transitioning military who are looking for careers in the space industry.

Often working in conjunction with our New Generation Initiatives, programs for young space professionals, and often coordinated with our annual Space Symposium, career awareness and workforce development programs include:

  • Networking sessions
  • Career fairs
  • Career presentations by leaders from the Space Foundation, Space Foundation Corporate Member companies, NASA and international space agencies, educational institutions and government agencies engaged in space
  • "Field trips" to major space entities
  • Incorporation of career components into Space Foundation New Horizon community programs

Before you can make your mark as an engineer, you need to find the school that can best help you build your skills.
