NASA Taps Three Universities Under Aerospace Production Funding Effort

1 min read

NASA has chosen three minority-serving universities to receive hands-on experience and support in aerospace manufacturing capacities to address industry gaps.

The agency said Wednesday its aeronautics research mission directorate has teamed up with the Office of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Engagement to provide curriculum-based training, research, learning, apprenticeship and internship efforts in high-volume aerospace production under a $1.5M funding opportunity through the Minority University Research and Education Project.

Tuskegee University, the University of Texas at El Paso and Virginia State University have collaborated with various organizations to implement proposals involving additive manufacturing effects, talent development and blisk materials.

In addition, the universities will create learning opportunities in the design, construction and supply chain management of aerospace components within two years.

NASA has established MUREP to equip minority-serving institutions with reinforced research, technological and academic capabilities through investment efforts.
