The production and maintenance of EngineSim involves the work and skills of a large number of people. EngineSim is a product of the NASA Glenn Learning Technologies Project (LTP) which is currently managed by Kathleen Zona.

The original EngineSim program was developed by Tom Benson, a research scientist in the Turbomachinery and Propulsion Systems Division, NASA Glenn Research Center. EngineSim began as a Unix program for college level students. It was modified for high school students based on the inputs from the following high school teachers:

EngineSim was converted to the PC Windows operating system by Darryl Palmer of DataSol Consulting and Bruce Bream of NASA Glenn Research Center. We are not continuing upgrades or modifications to the Windows version because of the introduction of the download Java version.

The Java applet and Java download versions were developed by Tom Benson based on input and recommendations of the LTP team; Carol Galica of Thigpen and Associates, Ruth Petersen of Integral Systems, Susan Martin-Vorndran of RSIS, Beth Lewandowski previous manager of the Glenn LTP, and Roger Storm of Fairview High School.

EngineSim is being "cyber-beta tested" by users on the World Wide Web. Recent modifications were made to the code based on suggestions/comments from:
