NPS Defense Energy Seminar

NPS' academic programs in Defense Energy are supplemented by a seminar series which provides a forum for leading voices within the field, practitioners, and other Defense Energy influencers. These professionals give presentations, engage in brown bag discussions, and facilitate informal gatherings that encourage Defense Energy faculty and students to discourse over current issues in Defense Energy, supplementing classroom teaching with practical, professional experiences. The Defense Energy Speakers' Seminars are a permanent part of NPS' Defense Energy program, and a key to its real-world relevance.
