Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT)

The Air Force Institute of Technology, or AFIT, is the Air Force's graduate school of engineering and management as well as its institution for technical professional continuing education. As a component of Air University and Air Education and Training Command, AFIT provides defense-focused graduate and professional continuing education and research to sustain the technological supremacy of America's air and space 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 and Services School. Through its Civilian Institution Programs, AFIT also manages the educational programs of officers enrolled in civilian universities, research centers, hospitals, and industrial organizations.
