For instance, the master of engineering degree in space operations (a strategy-approved area of study) from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs requires classes in astrodynamics
, mechanical-systems analysis, spacecraft dynamics, launch-vehicle analysis, systems engineering, and trajectory optimization, among other subjects.
