  • 18-Feb-2010 08:53 EST

Pratt & Whitney has established a Center of Excellence at the University of Connecticut (UConn) School of Engineering for research on aviation propulsion systems. P&W will work with UConn on fundamental and applied research initiatives that support the design and development of more efficient gas turbine engines. The university’s primary focus will be research in the field of advanced sensors, diagnostics, and controls for use in both commercial and military systems. “We have thousands of engineers in Connecticut, including many UConn graduates,” said Paul Adams, Senior Vice President, P&W Engineering. “This partnership allows us to bring their expertise to the next generation of engineers in a way that complements traditional studies.”
