Boeing and University of Washington partner on engineering center

Boeing and the University of Washington partner on an advanced engineering center.

Boeing and the University of Washington are taking their collaboration to greater heights with a new campus research center where doctoral engineering students, UW professors and Boeing engineers will work side by side on projects focused on automating aircraft assembly processes.
The jet maker is investing $800,000 per year initially to fund the first four research projects at the new Boeing Advanced Research Center, company spokesman Peter Conte said.
Jointly led by Boeing-employed engineers working as affiliate instructors and UW engineering professors, the 4,300-square-foot facility at the Department of Mechanical Engineering has been planned for more than a year.
