University of Southern Indiana signs Educational Partnership with NSWC Crane

Contact for more information:
Crane Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC Crane) and the University of Southern Indiana have formed an educational partnership enhancing USI faculty research and student learning opportunities while enhancing research and commercialization of technology residing at Crane. The education partnership covers USI’s Pott College of Science and Engineering and College of Business. This process will be facilitated by USI’s Center for Applied Research and Crane’s Office of Technology Transfer.

“This is an important partnership for the University,” said USI President H. Ray Hoops. “The partnership with NSWC Crane has great potential for USI to advance the time line for expanding our applied research capabilities and outreach to regional business and industry.”

Scott Gordon, dean of the Pott College of Science and Engineering, said, "This partnership opens new doors to collaboration and technology transfer among scientists and engineers at USI and NSWC Crane. The focus both institutions have on applied research will not only benefit the region, but open doors to new learning opportunities for students in southwest Indiana. This is a win/win for all parties involved."

NSWC Crane, located in Martin County, is the third largest Navy installation in the country employing over 1,500 scientists, engineers, and technicians. NSWC Crane provides comprehensive support for complex military systems spanning development, deployment, and sustainment in three mission areas: electronic warfare/information operations, special missions, and strategic missions.

“NSWC Crane leverages our technical capabilities and those of our industry partners to provide rapid response and technical solutions to meet the mission needs of the war fighter,” stated CAPT Mark Welsh, commander, NSWC Crane.

University of Southern Indiana is a comprehensive higher education institution of 10,000 students located in Evansville, Indiana. It serves both the higher education and economic development needs of southwest Indiana. USI’s ABET-accredited engineering program offers electrical, mechanical, and civil engineering concentrations.
