Welcome to APPEL


Under the Office of the Chief Engineer, the Academy of Program/Project & Engineering Leadership (APPEL) provides leadership, advice, direction, and support for the development and learning of the NASA program/project management and engineering community. The Academy:

  • Develops the technical workforce through a competency-based model that identifies learning experiences and activities that should take place at each career level.
  • Offers a training curriculum focused on providing NASA-specific expertise to ensure that the technical workforce shares a common base of knowledge and skills.
  • Offers direct support to project teams through assessment, workshops, expert consulting, rapid deployment training, coaching, and mentoring.
  • Facilitates the dissemination of lessons learned and best practices through knowledge sharing activities, including conferences, forums, publications, case studies, and communities of practice.
