Update of National Naval Responsibility for Naval Engineering


Project Scope:

The study will inform the Office of Naval Research (ONR) on the status of its efforts under the "National Naval Responsibilities: Naval Engineering" (NNR-NE) program to ensure that a healthy science and technology (S&T) and educational enterprise exists and is capable of meeting the future technology needs of the U.S. Navy in developing highly capable and affordable sea systems.

To do so, the study will evaluate:

(a) the current practice of naval engineering and whether it is consistent with the scope of technical areas that comprise the NNR-NE program. The evaluation will consider cybersecurity of connected vessels and future unmanned naval systems in addition to traditional sea platforms;

(b) the health, currency, and technical adequacy of the key S&T disciplines that support these core technical areas as well as others identified by the review of current naval engineering practice; and

(c) the health of the undergraduate and graduate education systems for developing future naval engineering professionals. 

In assessing the health of the key S&T disciplines and the systems for developing naval engineering professionals, the study will identify potential deficiencies in educational and research programs. 

As appropriate, the study will provide recommendations on opportunities to enhance naval engineering innovation, research, and undergraduate and graduate educational capabilities in basic and applied research.
