Air Force institute, Naval postgrad school form alliance. (Washington Pulse).
The partnership is designed to provide servicemen and women with a "relevant, high-quality education that is more aligned with defense needs while eliminating duplicate degree programs and consolidating educational resources," according to a Defense Department news release.
NPS will be the lead institution for meteorology and acquisition management, while AFIT will offer an aeronautical engineering curriculum for Air Force and Navy officers.
"By working together, we hope to minimize redundancy at each institution while still providing a world-class education in which officers from all services can engage in education and research programs in a joint environment," said Air Force Secretary James Roche.
"This is a tremendous effort to maximize the strengths of both AFIT and NPS and form solid alliances for a truly joint environment," said Navy Secretary Gordon England.
