Institute for Industry

During their February 2010 meeting, the Academic and Students Affairs Committee of the Louisiana Board of Regents approved the formation of the Institute for Industry - Education Collaboration (IIEC) at McNeese State University.

The Institute for Industry – Education Collaboration (IIEC) is a means for McNeese State University to accomplish its mission by providing a framework for organizing and expanding its existing industry – university collaborations to “enhance economic development and cultural growth in this region and beyond.”

The objectives of the IIEC are to:

  • Strengthen existing alliances between regional industry and higher education to retain more students, produce better skilled graduates and therefore shorten their path to full productivity as industry employees.
  • Mobilize the region’s industry and higher education communities for collaborative action to advance the region’s growth and economic development.
  • Bring regional industry and higher education leaders together to improve partnerships and help to integrate workplace skills in higher education as well as to improve the work-related skills of the existing workforce in our community.
  • Transfer university-produced knowledge and expertise to industry.
  • Transfer industry-produced knowledge and expertise to the university.
  • Create new innovative pathways of collaboration between regional industry and higher education.

IIEC can provide the following services:

  • Conduct applied research in science and engineering.

  • Organize seminars and workshops under the Lake Area Industries/McNeese Engineering Partnership (LAI/MEP).

  • Organize courses at the Gulf Coast Flowserve Satellite Training Site.

  • Write and submit grants to attract training and/or research funds.

  • Offer training for practicing engineers and technicians (technical workforce).

  • Offer technical and non-technical professional development courses.

  • Promote Industry Sponsored Senior Design/Research Projects.

  • Identify quality students/graduates who seek employment with industry.

  • Facilitate the translation of technical innovations to the marketplace (product development).

  • Assist with technology transfer, licensing issues, product commercialization.

  • Guide, counsel, and support start-up businesses with technical product issues.
