The real product of the SSL is our personnel. We currently have three faculty members, two full-time research and technical staff members, between fifteen and twenty graduate students, and between ten and twenty undergraduate students. Most students come from the aerospace engineering department but we also have electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, mathematicians, and computer scientists. We've even had an art student and an archeologist.
The SSL has a terrific record of placing students in exciting, high-paying jobs in industry, government, and academia, even during economic or aerospace industry downturns. SSL students have gone on to work on the International Space Station, OSC's Pegasus launch vehicle, McDonnell-Douglas' DC-X (an experimental Single-Stage-To-Orbit launch vehicle), and the Cassini and Magellan planetary probes, among others.
