Aerospace Engineering for Computer Scientists

Presented by: Ilyana Smith
Time: Thursday, Jan. 11, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

It IS rocket science! What does the International Space station have to do with basic programming principles? What considerations need to be taken into account when computers go to space? How does putting people in space make systems more complicated? In this session, you’ll get the answers to all these questions and more! You’ll discover the connections between these two seemingly unrelated fields, and you’ll come away with a better understanding of the aerospace field and how its history is intertwined with that of computers. You might even learn something about programming principles along the way!
