Lockheed Martin Lab

Lockheed Martin

The aerospace innovator sees MSU Denver as a vital workforce pipeline, investing $1 million in an endowment for the Advanced Manufacturing Sciences Institute and to establish the Lockheed Martin Additive Manufacturing Laboratory anchored by the Stratasys Fortus 900mc additive printer.

A popular co-op program has placed more than 80 graduates into full-time work with the company. And a unique relationship leveraging MSU Denver’s Hispanic Serving Institution status allows Lockheed Martin to contract on-demand orders with MSU Denver – a win-win-win as students also gain valuable applied learning.
