Newport News Shipbuilding Recruiting RPI Nuclear Students

For 126 years, Newport News Shipbuilding has carried on the legacy of American shipbuilding, designing and constructing some of the most famous aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines in American naval history. Recognizing the excellent quality of RPI’s nuclear engineering program, Newport News Shipbuilding has met with RPI faculty and are working jointly to develop a program that facilitates the recruitment of RPI’s students for summer and full-time employment opportunities. Mr. Kent F. Williams, manager of the Kesselring Prototype Facility, says that the demand for nuclear engineering students will remain strong for the foreseeable future and a strategic tie with a high caliber university like RPI is important in maintaining the future workforce for Newport News Shipbuilding.
