It has been an eventful three-and-half years since I first announced the creation of the RELLIS Campus. We are headed toward a half-billion dollars in construction, with more on the drawing board. And, of course, we just announced that the Army Futures Command is coming to test and evaluate new technologies at a specially-equipped lab we are building, including the nation’s largest hypersonic tunnel.
I thought it was time to invite the community to see the campus up close.
Welcome! And thanks for your interest.
WHAT IS RELLIS?
The mission of the RELLIS Campus is to provide a collaborative environment for multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional teaching, research and workforce development instruction committed to blending industry expertise with innovative research and an education. The collaborative nature of the RELLIS Campus offers unique opportunities for students and faculty, allowing the shifting of ideas from laboratories to the marketplace, while providing new and multiple pathways toward a college degree.
My father was housed at the Bryan Air Force Base, now RELLIS Campus, during his freshman year at Texas A&M. This unique family tie makes serving as the Director and the opportunities and responsibilities that come with that role all the more meaningful to me. From all of the roles I’ve served in Texas, Alabama, and in Ohio, the RELLIS Campus is by far the most exceptional. Researchers and industry partners at RELLIS are cultivating partnerships that deliver life-saving technology while the workforce of tomorrow earns their certifications and degrees. It is definitely the most unique place I have ever worked. I look forward to coming to work every day!
Bring your family. Bring your co-workers. Bring your friends. It’s about time you meet your new neighbors at the RELLIS Campus.
