    Courses Completed


    UND – Fall Semester 2008:   SpSt 501:  Survey of Space Studies I, Professor David Whalen

    Required course A broad, multidisciplinary survey of human and robotic exploration of space. The course will introduce the student to the key policy, history, military, economic, management, planetary science, life science, and engineering issues that characterize todays space ventures. Emphasis is on building up the fundamental knowledge base that will form the basis for interdisciplinary analysis later in the program. While focus is on the U.S. space program, international space activities are prominently featured in terms of cooperation and competition fr the United States. SpSt 501 is a pre-requisite/co-requisite to all other 500-level courses and must be taken at the first available opportunity.

    UND – Spring Semester 2009: SpSt 502:  Survey of Space Studies II, Professor Ron Fevig


    Readings, discussion and integrative analysis of past and current issues in Space Studies. Emphasis is on a case study approach to develop an interdisciplinary understanding of space programs and initiatives. An individual project will build integrative and critical analysis skills and an appreciation for the interdisciplinary approach, while a team project will engender the interdisciplinary team work typical of the real world. Must be taken only after completing SpSt 501 and at least two other courses in the program.

    UND - Spring Semester 2010:  SpSt 590:  Space Studies Colloquium, Professor Santhosh Seelan

The focus is on private sector companies ranging from the large aerospace industry to the small, start-up and entrepreneurial space companies. You will learn the basics of management theory, its reality in the actual business and operating world, and through guest speakers from these business communities, how the space companies are actually managed. We discuss the value of management with an economic awareness, the risks and upsides faced by space business managers and more.


    UND - Fall Semester 2010:  SpSt 500:  Intro to Orbital Mechanics, Professor Ron Fevig

    UND – Spring Semester 2011: SpSt 570 Commercial Space: 2011 & Beyond

    With the new changes taking place in our national civil space program and policy given national, economic, budget, and deficit considerations here and globally, this class will examine and explore the evolving commercial space industry, including its potential and its risks for human spaceflight as well as cargo missions.  We will address what is meant by the use of the term "commercial."  This class will also examine the role of the entrepreneurial space community and NewSpace, its impact and potential contributions to our changing national space policy. As part of this examination, our class will undertake a realistic assessment of markets, space tourism, suborbital academic and scientific research programs such as the NASA CRuSR program, regulations, and rules to be issued by NASA and the AST.  Since the government remains the primary and in many cases the only customer, we will look at the two primary contracting forms, cost plus and fixed price contracting, to see how each method impacts the space program and why one is considered commercial and the other is considered a business as usual government model. We will also be assessing the risks of each contracting type for the contracting parties and stakeholders.  The expected outcome of having taken this class is for students to have an objective and comprehensive understanding of the business, management, financial, and marketing issues along with the technical and policy challenges facing our evolving space program.
