Welcome Students and Recent Graduates
At KSC, a flexible, mission-focused workforce is the key to our success. KSC serves as NASA's Center of Excellence for both launch and payload processing systems.
KSC is rich with tradition and interesting stories. It is from KSC that Neil Armstrong and the rest of the Apollo 11 crew lifted off on the way to becoming the first humans to step foot on the moon. Where else can you walk the footsteps of such tradition? Where else can you watch fellow Americans leave this Earth and fulfill a centuries old dream of reaching the stars?
Today, NASA is on the edge of a bold new challenge. NASA is creating an exciting future where it will develop capabilities for the next generation to explore space, expand commercial access to space for crew and cargo, and develop many more missions to explore our home planet, the solar system and the universe beyond. We want you to be a part of this great legacy, by joining our team!
Wishing you success in your career endeavors!
