SICSA is actively pursuing opportunities to capitalize upon its unique advantages to expand activities and resources. The establishment of the MS-Space Architecture program is a timely initiative, occurring as the emphasis of NASA and the larger aerospace community are in beginning stages of gearing up to address an ambitious US space exploration mandate. This development presents many challenges and opportunities that relate directly to SICSA’s recognized areas of expertise and accomplishment. SICSA's faculty prepared a number of Lecture Series reports in areas of their knowledge. SICSA’s Lecture Series summarize knowledge and important issues related to SICSA’s research and design endeavors.

SICSA’s faculty and graduate students routinely present technical papers at major national and international conferences sponsored by key professional societies and associa  tions, and often serving as invited speakers and session leaders at these events.
