Educational Partnerships

Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex — Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex (WRALC) is the largest entity housed at Robins Air Force Base. In 1983, WRALC and Mercer began discussions about the critical need for engineers at WRALC. As a result, the University established the School of Engineering in 1985 and Mercer Engineering Research Center in 1987. The educational partnership was formally renewed in 2014. Today, Mercer is WRALC’s largest source of entry-level engineers.
