Naval Engineering Education Consortium (NEEC) cultivates a world-class naval
engineering workforce through student participation in project-based research
conducted at colleges and universities. Directed
by NAVSEA Warfare Center headquarters and implemented at ten Divisions across
the country, NEEC projects target the Navy’s most relevant technology needs.
three primary objectives of NEEC are to:
• Acquire academic research results and products
to resolve Naval technology challenges
• Hire college graduates with Naval engineering research
and development (R&D) experience into the NAVSEA workforce (primarily Bachelor’s
and Master’s degrees)
• Develop/continue exceptional working
relationships with Naval engineering colleges, universities, professors &
How to join: Formal NEEC partnerships are established via contracts that define Naval-related projects with student participation. The contracting process initiated by a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) provides a way for our technical workforce to connect with expertise and students (as potential employees) at the academic institution. Please see the NEEC BAA on the Federal Business Opportunities.
Consortium Partners: In addition to the ten NAVSEA Warfare Center Divisions, with potential to include other Navy commands, NEEC is comprised of more than 20 academic institutions.
