Academy of Program/Project and Engineering Leadership (APPEL)
The Academy of Program/Project and Engineering Leadership (APPEL), a division of the NASA Office of the Chief Engineer, contributes to NASA’s mission by promoting individual and team excellence in program/project management and engineering through the application of learning strategies, methods, models, and tools. It supports individual practitioners as well as NASA project and program teams at every level of development through its four primary business lines: Curriculum, Knowledge Sharing, Performance Enhancement, and Research and Advanced Concepts.
APPEL's research has shown that fully 80% of individual learning at NASA takes place on the job through hands-on experience. With that in mind, APPEL takes a blended learning approach, recognizing the necessity of creating many opportunities for learning in order to address the full range of learning styles and modes.
The APPEL curriculum employs state-of-the art methodologies based on the best empirical research and the latest developments in industry. In doing so, the Academy strives to do nothing less than set the standard for training and development for engineering and project management, thus advancing the mission of NASA in its service of our nation.
