Defense Acquisition University

In its efforts to revitalize systems engineering across the DoD enterprise, Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Engineering (ODASD(SE)) has found a natural partnership with DAU. As the corporate university for the Department of Defense’s acquisition workforce, DAU provides a global learning environment to develop qualified acquisition professionals who deliver and sustain effective and affordable warfighting capabilities.

DAU has three main service areas:

  • Foundational Learning: Gives the workforce the long term knowledge and habits of mind through structured learning in training classes, continuous learning modules and rapid deployment training.
  • Workflow Learning: Builds on foundational learning principals in helping the workforce succeed on the job through the use of online knowledge sharing resources and job support tools.
  • Performance Learning: Extends acquisition learning beyond the classroom and into the workplace, changing acquisition outcomes by applying significant training resources at critical moments for teams and the overall workforce.
