Last week Jeremy Kasdin‘s satellite design class, MAE 342, took a little field trip — to Pasadena, California, where they presented their final project to Jet Propulsion Laboratory engineers.

The students met with director Charles Elachi, toured JPL facilities, and "spent three hours in their integrated design facility working side-by-side with JPL engineers updating their satellite design," Kasdin reports.

Here’s some coverage from The Economist on a previous satellite design class taught by Kasdin.
