NESC's mission is to perform value-added independent testing, analysis, and assessments of NASA's high-risk projects to ensure safety and mission success. The NESC engages proactively to help NASA avoid future problems.
Capturing and preserving critical knowledge for the future.
The NESC is engaged in activities to identify, retain, and share critical knowledge in order to meet our future challenges. To disseminate that knowledge to engineers – within NASA, industry, and academia – the NESC develops a wide variety of knowledge products that can be readily accessed including technical assessment reports, technical bulletins, video libraries, and more.
The NESC Academy presents live and on-demand content from researchers, engineers, and field experts in 19 technical disciplines relevant to the design, development, test, and operation of NASA programs and projects. It hosts more than 900 videos containing interviews, tutorials, lectures, and lessons learned in an engaging format with powerful search capabilities, downloadable course materials, and more.
The NASA Engineering Network allows employees to engage and collaborate with peers and experts across the agency or find relevant information; whether you’re on-site at any NASA center or working remotely with VPN access.
