With respect to students, the faculty will use existing courses or create new ones to complement existing courses. With respect to research, faculty will write proposals to explore areas in which they either have current support or have expertise and are as yet unfunded.
Technology Transfer Activities
Modifications to current courses will allow students to learn the most recent analysis and design techniques; results of subsequent follow-on research contracts awarded will be published at presented at appropriate professional meetings.
