Space

The first human being to walk on the moon was an engineer. The space program that made those steps possible employed thousands of engineers.

Engineering has always had a critical role in our efforts to explore universe. Great challenges like going to the moon, creating colonies in space, traveling to and developing settlements on other planets demand creative problem-solving.
