Northrop Grumman Opens Office at Virginia Tech
October 22, 2009

Northrop Grumman recently opened an office at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center (CRC). The new office is a suite located at 1715 Pratt Drive in Blacksburg.

The Blacksburg office represents all of Northrop Grumman, not just the shipbuilding sector. Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding of Newport News hired its first Virginia Tech engineering graduate in 1898, and today has almost 350 Virginia Tech alums working at the facility. With 120,000 employees in offices around the world, Northrop Grumman is the second largest defense contractor in the United States in terms of revenue.

The College of Engineering and Northrop Grumman plan collaborative efforts to jointly pursue government research contracts, and the company plans to provide philanthropic funding for the College’s new Nuclear Engineering program, the new Virginia Tech Foundry Institute for Research and Education program initiative, and alternative energy initiatives.

The College of Engineering has additional relationships in place with Northrop Grumman Electrical in Baltimore through its Space @ VT research and education program and other projects. Also, Northrop Grumman recently signed a $1 million research agreement with the university.
