Short Courses

Instar's courses stem from a common philosophy: The way to reduce the cost of space programs is to improve engineering, management, processes, communication, and morale, and to do things right the first time. We strive to help our students understand the big picture and the details that typically cause problems. We then show how to use this understanding to generate clear and effective requirements, develop simple designs, plan and perform efficient analyses and tests, and avoid problems.

Instar's instructors are experienced engineers in the space industry who have developed effective teaching skills. Our courses reflect the belief that people learn best through examples and class interaction.

In addition to the courses described here, we can customize a course for your needs. The course outlines listed are subject to change because we are constantly trying to improve them.
