The Nebraska AE program has very strong ties with the industry and offers both faculty and students continued collaboration opportunities with the industry. As one of many examples of this continuous and fruitful collaboration with our industry, the AE program received the 2016 Grand Prize from NCEES for industry-academic partnerships.
