New program aims to combine industrial engineering with navy engineering analytics

Faculty in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering (IMSE) are developing a new program that will provide students with the knowledge and skills to pursue careers in the U.S. Navy and adjacent paths. A group of IMSE researchers recently received a $520,000 grant from the Office of Naval Research’s STEM Education and Workforce Program to establish the Navy Engineering Analytics Program (NEAP), which they intend to eventually become a minor program administered through the IMSE department.
