Wichita State University’s location in the heart of Wichita –a mecca for aircraft manufacturing, healthcare and business– provides the opportunity for applied learning and
research to be infused throughout each student’s educational experience. By conducting research and internships in their fields, students gain real-world experience, allowing them to develop
and apply critical skills.
And students aren’t the only ones who benefit. Local businesses count on WSU centers like the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR), Center for Economic Development and Business Research, Applied Psychology Research Institute and Advanced Networking Research Institute as a vital part of their business plan.
