University of Arkansas and Honeywell Working Together on National Security Technology
U of A signed an agreement with the international technology company that will help provide engineering and manufacturing for national security.
The University of Arkansas and Honeywell recently signed a master collaboration agreement.
As part of the agreement, U of A researchers will be working with the Kansas City National Security Campus for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration, which is managed and operated by Honeywell. The campus is a high-tech facility that has more than 3,000 employees and specializes in science-based and additive manufacturing. It provides diverse engineering and manufacturing for national security.
“Two of our guiding priorities at the University of Arkansas are building a collaborative and innovative campus and enhancing our research and discovery mission, and this master collaboration agreement furthers both,” said Jim Coleman, provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs during the event. “Master collaboration agreements like this help us advance our research mission and our obligation to the state to advance science, and the College of Engineering is setting the pace with collaborative partnerships with industry.”
“Education is the foundation of a skilled workforce and helps fuel innovation,” said Stubenhofer. “On behalf of Honeywell and our federal government customer, we are pleased to support STEM collaboration while advancing the national security mission.”
The University of Arkansas College of Engineering is the largest engineering program in the state of Arkansas. Over the past decade, the college has experienced unprecedented growth. Undergraduate enrollment has doubled since 2007, and total enrollment in the college is now over 4,000 students. The College of Engineering offers graduate and undergraduate degrees in nine engineering fields, as well as incorporating distance learning and interdisciplinary programs. Faculty in the college conduct research in many key areas, including electronics, energy, healthcare logistics, nanotechnology, transportation and logistics.
