Worcester Polytechnic Institute's Advanced Space Design (ASD) Program provides project-based design experiences that combine a highly motivating, need-to-know experience with an integrative capstone design that draws on the know-how of practitioners in the profession. Mechanical engineering students work with their counterparts in electrical, chemical, and civil engineering to develop integrated packages of experiments to be conducted in the micro-gravity environment of space.
