USNA is participating in the Systems Engineering Research Center RT-19 research project to develop systems engineering talent in the workforce. RT-19 is focused on developing solutions to real-world problems emphasizing the development and application of systems engineering skills and methods. Our RT-19 participation includes sixteen students, three departments, and four design projects. Each design project is developing a functioning artifact that could be delivered as a prototype. At CDIO, we will provide a full accounting of our experiences at USNA including accomplishments, lessons learned, and our plans to improve the senior-design process at USNA.
