"This is just to convey that I and other participants found your one-day seminar here most interesting and valuable.

Custom Short Courses

CRC can provide custom versions of the courses described here, including one-day executive summaries and full classes focused on the needs of your organization. For example, at the request of NASA-Glenn, a Hypersonic Aircraft Design class was prepared incorporating material from the Aircraft and Spacecraft design classes, and combined with a hands-on design lab in which NASA engineers designed two hypersonic technology demonstrators.

Contact Conceptual Research Corporation (310-577-3773) for price and schedule availability for an executive or custom in-house short course.
