NESEP plaque

NESEP Plaque on display in EE building

This site is dedicated to the men of the Navy Enlisted Scientific Education Program (NESEP) who were assigned as students to Purdue University beginning in 1958. The NESEP program selected sailors and marines serving in our fleet and assigned them to Purdue to obtain a four-year engineering degree. Most of these men studied electrical engineering, were commissioned as naval officers, served their country, and following their service, led U.S. industry to the forefront in the fields of electronics and computing.
