Finally, there may soon be a new way of learning complex high technology subject matter. Of course, the digital age has certainly created new educational tools and techniques. Many of today's engineering texts include CDs with special programs for problem solving and displaying example problems and solutions.
Online courses have proliferated to the point where major universities are now offering complete degree programs without ever setting foot on a campus.
However, courses such as those in the hard sciences, engineering and advanced mathematics have lagged behind when it comes to online learning.
While it is possible to learn many of the theories and understand how to carry out a certain level of problem solving from online lectures and examples, we do not yet have an effective way to gain deep insight into real-world scenarios for the science and technology professional working in the complex world of engineering systems.
The space industry represents is a good example of the difficulty professionals have in advancing through the use of online tools and methods.
Launchspace is addressing this situation and will hopefully soon introduce a new way of learning about, and gaining insight into, the complex world of systems design, engineering, operations and many other related subjects.
We are creating new tools and techniques that will be initially used in conjunction with our aerospace professional development training programs.
However, it is our goal to evolve these tools into a successful self-learning product line for the many industries that deal with highly complex systems such as those encountered in aerospace and defense applications. And, beyond.
