NUWC engineer honored for ‘virtual schoolhouse’

Posted 11/27/13

NEWPORT – Anh Nguyen, a computer engineer at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center, has received the U.S. Black Engineer and Information Technology magazine Science Spectrum Trailblazer Award.

The Trailblazer Award is presented to men and women actively forging new paths for others to pursue careers in science, research, technology and development. Nguyen won the distinction in recognition of his work developing a “virtual schoolhouse” that provides high-fidelity training content via NUWC’s virtual network.

Nguyen, who has served for seven years at NUWC, led the team of engineers that designed and developed the virtual schoolhouse, now among the U.S. Navy’s most innovative, cost-saving training programs, NUWC said.

A resident of Middletown, Nguyen holds a bachelor’s degree in computer systems engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He expects to complete a master’s degree in software engineering at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass., this winter.

Nguyen will receive the Science Spectrum Trailblazer Award at the 28th Black Engineer of the Year Science Technology Engineering and Math Conference in February 2014 in Washington, D.C.
