Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is one of the largest, most diverse and complex installations in the Air Force, encompassing approximately 11,000 civilian positions. Whether your career is in maintenance, cutting-edge research & development, or somewhere in between, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base may have the job for you.
The Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (W-P AFB), near Dayton, OH. AFIT is a component of Air University (AU), which is a major element of the Air Forces Air Education and Training Command (AETC). The Headquarters of AU is located at Maxwell AFB, in Montgomery, AL.
AFITs mission is to advance air, space and cyberspace power for the nation and its partners, by providing relevant graduate education, professional continuing education (PCE), research and consulting services. AFIT accomplishes its mission at three schools located at its resident campus at W-P AFB: the Graduate School of Engineering and Management (GSEM); the School of Systems and Logistics; and The Civil Engineer School. AFIT also manages and supports Air Force students attending civilian institutions around the U.S. and in several foreign countries, i.e., students enrolled in programs at civilian universities, hospitals and medical centers, and with companies in business and industry.
AFITs resident GSEM is a research-intensive, defense-focused graduate school, currently offering the master-of-science degree in 26 programs and Ph.D. degrees in 14 disciplines, in various areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Typical enrollment is about 700 students. The School of Systems and Logistics and The Civil Engineer School offer about 185 PCE courses (in residence and/or by various modes of distance learning). Students include military officers from all U.S. armed forces, military officers from a number of foreign countries, federal civilian employees, and non-government employees from (primarily) companies in the defense industry. AFIT also supports about 2,500 Air Force officers who are attending graduate-level programs at more than 300 civilian institutions around the country. Approximately 485 faculty and staff (military and civilian) are currently assigned at AFIT and annual budgets approach $250 million.
AFIT faculty are recognized nationally and internationally and have made fundamental contributions to national security through basic and applied research in traditional academic disciplines and (especially) in non-traditional, multi-disciplinary areas uniquely designed to serve the defense and national security of the U.S. and its allies. AFIT is also a highly-valued source of expert advice to the Department of Defense (DoD) and many other federal departments and agencies, including (e.g.) agencies in the Intelligence Community, NASA, and the Department of Energys national laboratories. AFIT provides experimental and demonstration platforms for dealing with a wide variety of exigent military problems. Research and education is conducted at both the unclassified and classified levels.
AFIT conducts its educational and research activities in collaboration with a wide variety of government and non-government partners. It has formal strategic partnerships with (e.g.) the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Naval Postgraduate School. It also has partnership agreements with numerous government organizations, civilian universities, and private-sector companies.
AFIT is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and was recently granted reaccreditation for the maximum ten-year period. Many of AFITs engineering programs are also accredited by ABET. More information about AFIT is available at the Institutes public web site: http://www.afit.edu.
