The partnership brings benefits to both RAFB and Auburn Engineering. It will help RAFB to cultivate, recruit and diversify the Air Force workforce, help to develop new technology by engaging with faculty and students, and increase the potential for transfer and commercialization of Air Force technology. In return, Auburn Engineering will gain access to valuable scientific equipment and qualified Air Force scientists and engineers as mentors to students, for collaboration on research and projects and open doors for future career opportunities for students.
