Decades of precision work at Y‑12 have created expertise in many areas. Our expertise puts us in a unique position to solve problems for other customers in government and in the private sector. We partner with other other Department of Energy sites, other government agencies, academic institutions and private industries.

Among our academic partnerships is our collaboration with the nearby University of Tennessee. Leaders from Y‑12’s divisions have identified specific areas where their needs might align with UT faculty research strengths, and we are working on projects with nine of UT's eleven colleges.

Our partners have access to many unique and highly specialized products and services not available in the private sector.
