COE Selected as Northrop Grumman Core University Partner

The College of Engineering has been selected to be one of Northrop Grumman Corporation’s Core University Partners. Northrop Grumman’s Core University Partners are selected for their ability to play a key role in generating the knowledge, innovation and talent required to maintain and increase the corporation’s global competitiveness.

The College of Engineering has a longstanding relationship with Northrop Grumman’s Southern California divisions, and has long provided them with engineers who go on to play vital roles in the company’s development of some of the nation’s most advanced systems. This relationship between Northrop Grumman and the College of Engineering has recently grown to include joint research endeavors—which is an honor generally reserved for prominent research-oriented institutions—and now the company’s corporate group is recognizing the COE as a Core University Partner.
