AIADs & Capstone Projects!
Cadets with a Mechanical Engineering background are in high demand by industry. AIADs provide experience working in robotics, computer simulations, aircraft, and weapons effects sponsored by agencies such as NASA, General Dynamics, Boeing, Sikorsky, and MIT Lincoln Labs.
Capstone projects are the culmination of the Mechanical Engineering experience! Cadets design, model, build, and test their own products. Recurring projects include the numerous UAS designs, weapon modifications, and Soldier Design challenge!
Let's hear about an exciting capstone helping improve Soldier's connectivity!
