National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Cooperative Research and Development Agreement

The Intelligence Analysis Program is an active participant in a cooperative agreement between the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and JMU. This agreement has resulted in the NGA developing project ideas for students and faculty to work on that are of interest to the NGA, and then arranging for NGA analysts and scientists to directly mentor and advise the students and faculty members working on those projects. In many cases, the results of these student projects have been of great interest to the NGA, and students and faculty have been asked to present briefs on them.

Industry Partner Program

The College of Integrated Science and Engineering Industry Partners Program seeks to foster a meaningful and sustained partnership between students, faculty, staff, and industry leaders who share a common purpose of improving our world through the cultivation of integrated science, technology, and engineering.

Our faculty currently collaborate with a wide range of private-sector partners, ranging from larger companies like Verizon and MITRE to smaller, local businesses such as Vine and Fig and Trout Unlimited. Most of these collaborations focus on student involvement in addressing the challenges that these companies face. Our students benefit by being able to put their knowledge and skills to work on a real-world challenge, and our partners benefit from our students’ strong academic preparation and their willingness to think creatively yet pragmatically. Learn more about our Industry Partners Program.
