No longer constrained after our separation from the university on July 1, 1999, OEI Inc. has pursued its wider vision, offering a broad array of short courses designed specifically with technology corporations in mind, helping them meet their objectives of technical excellence, competitiveness and marketplace success. OEI Inc. will continue its world-class engineering program, encompassing the latest technologies and standards, augmented now by complementary programs in management, leadership, economics, quality and reliability.
Upon popular demand, OEI programs have expanded to include specially designed curricula for non-technical professionals offering comprehensive, yet not mathematically challenging, overviews of the latest technologies.
OEI offices are located in VA, NC, MO, FL, and continue expanding as the demand for our services grows. Our staff can be contacted at:

We at OEI pride ourselves on our attention to detail, flexibility and service to the professional community. As we strive for excellence, there are occasionally situations beyond our control.
A full and unconditional tuition refund will be made when requested a minimum of fourteen business days prior to the beginning of the class. Cancellations received after this time will qualify for course substitution only. Tuition is applicable towards any scheduled OEI course, and must be taken within two years (24 months) of the originally scheduled course date. Note that a $150 US administrative fee will be assessed for any cancellation request received less than fourteen days in advance of the class.
Occasionally, circumstances beyond our control may necessitate substitution
of an instructor or textbook. In the event of class cancellation, tuition
will be promptly refunded. Please consider this possibility since we cannot
be responsible for non-refundable travel arrangements.

The last decade of the 20th century has been nothing less than another "industrial" revolution. The pace of technological advances in all fields, mutually cultivating each other and rushing forward, while supported by seemingly unbounded public funding, has brought us marvels of technology, not so long ago considered science fiction. Today, hardware coexists with software, the systems are "embedded" and "distributed", "middleware"’ surfaced and boundaries between once distinct fields of engineering became "fuzzy". It is now harder than ever to say "my job ends here…." Now, in addition to continously catching-up with innovations in "our own field", an interdisciplinary training becomes a professional necessity.
OEI's mission is to assist the technical community, and all those associated with product development, business development, marketing and management, in a rapid adaptation of critical technologies deemed necessary for meeting your company’s next strategic objective.
OEI's faculty is comprised of world-renowned academicians, scientists, and engineers who currently practice in their respective fields, and who, in addition to their theoretical knowledge, bring their vast practical experience to the class. In these days when ‘economies-of-scale’ thrust many institutions into mass-produced, web-based training, OEI remains true to its original mission of cultivating a time-proven, stimulating environment of personal interaction and free discussion with the instructor in a classroom-based environment.
