16.831 Space Systems Development

Class Info

Students build a space system, focusing on refinement of sub-system designs and fabrication of full-scale prototypes. Sub-systems are integrated into a vehicle and tested. Sub-system performance is verified using methods of experimental inquiry, and is compared with physical models of performance and design goals. Communication skills are honed through written and oral reports. Formal reviews include the Implementation Plan Review and the Acceptance Review. Knowledge of the engineering design process is helpful.

This class has no prerequisites.

16.831 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by J. A. Hoffman and A. Saenz-Otero.

Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 35-225.

This class counts for a total of 18 credits. This class counts as a CI-M.

In the Spring 2016 Subject Evaluations, 16.831 was rated 4.1 out of 7.0. You can find more information at the Curriculum and Requirements site or on the 16.831 Stellar site.
