Spring Seminars on Naval Topics Returning to UConn, URI

  • Seminar series on naval technology issues returning to University of Connecticut and University of Rhode Island starting in January
  • Intent of presenting real-world naval applications and career opportunities to engineering students
  • Presenters get a chance to connect with and recruit students

Summary by Dirk Langeveld

A seminar series on naval technology will return to two New England universities next year.

The URI-UConn Naval Science & Technology Seminar will kick off on Jan. 26 and be held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesdays. In the series, regional naval professionals discuss naval-related topics with undergraduate and graduate engineering students at the University of Connecticut and the University of Rhode Island.

The goal of the series is to present real-world naval applications to students, bolstering their interest in STEM programs, make them aware of naval-related careers, and inspire innovative thinking on current issues and technical challenges. Presents also benefit by meeting and recruiting students, with a minimal time commitment and the ability to present at either campus (the seminar is broadcast to the other university).

Presenters interested in taking part in the series can contact either campus director for the Navy STEM Coalition: Valerie Maier-Speredelozzi at or Alexandra Hain at
