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. Engineers are uniquely trained to bring these skills to teams of people that may involve scientists, mathematicians, medical doctors, and other professionals.

Engineers help design and develop the satellites and large-scale telescope that collect information about deep space and help us better understand the universe in which we live.

  • Women in Space

    The ‘Women in Space’ database produced by the Telegraph Jobs engineering team is split across Historic Heroines, those who have traveled into space, and Modern Marvels, those women who have helped make space travel possible. The project comes as part of the UK’s wider drive towards encouraging girls to take up careers relating to STEM subjects

    Hubble Telescope
    The Hubble Telescope, one of the largest and most complex satellites ever built, was the result of over 20 years of science research and engineering. Deployed April 25, 1990 from the space shuttle Discovery, Hubble barely skims the Earth's atmosphere, orbiting just 380 miles above our planet. It is the size of a school bus and looks like a five-story tower of stacked silver canisters. Each canister houses important telescope equipment: the focusing mirrors, computers, imaging instruments, and pointing and control mechanisms. Extending from the telescope are solar panels for generating electricity and antennas for communicating with operators on the ground. It is named after American astronomer Edwin Powell Hubble, who among other achievements, discovered in 1929 that the universe is expanding. Every 97 minutes, the Hubble telescope orbits around Earth, moving at the speed of five miles per second -- fast enough to travel across the United States in about 10 minutes.
