Defense to Degree is an innovative program training the best and brightest, U.S. military veterans, to excel in electrical and computer engineering. After all, transitioning from the Armed Forces to the civilian workforce can be challenging, but Kansas State University's NSF-supported initiative helps in six key ways:

  1. Academic credit for qualified military training 
  2. Admissions and academic advisors trained to assist veterans 
  3. Internships specifically for veterans 
  4. Military-connected student body with veteran engineering student groups 
  5. Fully accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology, improving student employment and financial aid prospects 
  6. Easy access to nearby military installations and veteran support services
