"Technical Education in Rapidly Transforming World of Aerospace and Space Travel"

October 28 and 29

ATEA is offering the conference complimentary because of the team of experts who have volunteered their time to present on this exciting and important topic.

Is a spaceport in your future?

What are the diversified jobs in aerospace and aviation?

Learn from their experience  of collaborating to deliver technical education to the space, aerospace, NASA and military employers.

An excellent example as to how a Community College, a University in southern New Mexico's, Doña Ana County and the City of Las Cruces collaborated to build, strategize, and grow the economy, labor force, and technical training needs for the White Sands Testing Facility. 

Hear from other benefactors and presenters at this “virtual 2-day conference” representing the White Sands Missile Range, NASA White Sands Test Facility , and the “commercial space” cluster being lead by Virgin Galactic at Spaceport America.
