Systems Research and Education Consortium (SREC)

Mission:

The goal of the Systems Research and Education Consortium (SREC) is to facilitate industry and university collaborations to address the critical need of educating the next-generation highly qualified engineers and researchers. SREC will provide students with valuable hands-on training experience and enhanced ability to solve real-world research and development problems. SREC will also provide a holistic approach to engineering education, and include instructions on topics such as time management, responsibility and accountability, intellectual property, project management, and healthy living habits.
 
Founded and led by a woman faculty member, SREC will work actively on providing special training and research opportunities for future women engineers, contributing to a more diversified next-generation engineering workforce.
