Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT)

The Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT), located at Wright Patterson AFB, is the Department of the Air Force's leader for advanced, multi-disciplinary academic education, as well as its institution for initial technical and professional continuing education. A component of Air University and Air Education and Training Command, AFIT provides innovative, defense-focused graduate education and related research, and operationally-relevant initial skills training and professional continuing education to sustain the technological supremacy of America's air, space, and cyber forces.

AFIT accomplishes this mission through four schools: the Graduate School of Engineering and Management, the School of Systems and Logistics, the School of Strategic Force Studies, and the Civil Engineer School. Through its Civilian Institution Programs Office, AFIT also manages the educational programs of Airmen and Guardians enrolled in civilian universities, research centers, teaching hospitals, and industrial organizations.
