UCAH Survey of Industrial Partners on Development of the Current Workforce

Dear Colleague-

You are receiving this survey because you have been identified by your organization as the point of contact for interaction with the DoD Joint Hypersonic Transition Office’s University Consortium for Applied Hypersonics (UCAH). 

As part of the UCAH Workforce Development efforts, we are surveying all industry members of the UCAH regarding their current practice in the development of the existing workforce and their desired opportunities for development of the industrial workforce in the future. 

While this survey is intended to identify the needs of industry regarding professional workforce development, a companion survey is being distributed to the UCAH academic member institutions that will help identify available short courses, certificate programs and other relevant programs suitable for development of the professional hypersonic workforce.  The information collected in this survey will be organized in a searchable database and made available to the membership of the consortium via the UCAH website.

If you would like to discuss opportunities for partnering with a UCAH-affiliated university in your region in the near future, there is an opportunity to request to be contacted to begin such discussions in the survey below. 

Thank you for your time in completing the survey – either by completing it yourself or ensuring that it is completed by an appropriate colleague within your organization.  Your responses will help us organize a variety of options for use by industry in the continued development of the current professional workforce.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

UCAH Workforce Development Team and Interim Governance Board Member
