The Engineering Design program at New River Community College has been recognized by the American Drafting and Design Association (ADDA) as one of the top programs in the country.
The second year design students have produced advanced concept design projects such as UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicles) & UAV (Unmanned Air Vehicles). These projects have brought a great deal of attention to the Engineering Design Technology program by companies such as:
- Lockheed Martin’s SkunkWorks in California (a top secret, black ops project team)
- Huntington Ingals Naval Design Group in Newport News where the U.S. Navy’s nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers are built
- SAIC, one of the largest reverse engineering defense contractors in the world
- Phoenix Integration, a D.O.D. contractor/software and product developer which brought aboard the Engineering Design Technology program as an “Academic Partner.” NRCC joins with schools such as MIT, Stanford, Purdue University, Penn State, Virginia Tech Aerospace & Ocean Engineering and a host of others:
Multiple projects from past graduating classes incorporate concept designs which have received rave reviews by: Skunk Works, General Dynamics, Dr. Daniel Raymer, President of Conceptual Research Corp - Author AIAA as well as current AIAA President; and former Chief Scientist of the United States Air Force, Dr. David Thompson.
