Morgan State University has signed an educational agreement with the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division.

The five-year partnership enables the unit, headquartered in Indian Head, Md., to provide Morgan students and faculty staff expertise and unique facilities and equipment for research.

“Being able to partner with the Naval Surface Warfare Center is an invaluable experiential learning opportunity that will provide our students and faculty with access to a wealth of expertise in the STEM fields,” said MSU President David Wilson. “In addition to the obvious educational benefits, this partnership also positively positions our students to have a pipeline to high valued careers following their graduation.”

Capt. Scott Kraft, commanding officer at the center, said the partnership not only provides the opportunity to mentor students, but also shows them first-hand how their STEM education can have far-reaching impact.

“Hopefully inspiring some of these great minds to join us in future endeavors supporting our warfighters,” Kraft said.
