About Rocket U
Rocket University (“Rocket U” or “RU”) is a NASA training and development effort designed to develop and maintain systems engineering and project management skills and technical expertise through coursework, hands-on applications, and practice. Initially created at Kennedy Space Center in 2011, the Rocket U program expanded to Glenn Research Center in 2013. While both programs share a common foundation, each is tailored to meet the learning needs of their center and workforce. Since 2012, APPEL has served as a key partner with NASA’s Rocket U programs as part of its commitment to hands-on training and development for the NASA workforce.

“Rocket University may represent the best ‘bang for the buck’ within our APPEL portfolio. Not only do participants utilize our courses, but they also develop as practitioners through hands-on experience with building flight hardware and working on project teams.”
~ Roger Forsgren, APPEL Director
