Program Offices

Our program offices support a wide array of programs for the Space and Missile Systems Center, civil and commercial operations for NASA, and customers in the intelligence community.
Program Offices


The Aerospace Corporation is built on three core principles: a matrixed engineering structure, colocation with our customer to support programmatic and technical needs, and a parallel hierarchy with our government counterparts. Aerospace is seeking the next generation of program leaders to work closely with our customers and cross-functional teams to maximize our resources and expertise within our customer-facing groups.
