HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah — Future Air Force scientists and engineers visited Hill recently during a Science & Engineering Palace Acquire Operational Training Assignment, which involved a base tour and briefings on Hill’s science and engineering workplaces Sept. 17-22.
Science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM, job fields are in high demand all over the world and it can be challenging for the U.S. government to compete with the private sector to entice and retain qualified STEM employees.
The Air Force has a unique advantage with their S&E PAQ program that enables the service to provide entry-level STEM opportunities to individuals outside of the Air Force and also identify and educate future leaders in STEM fields.
During the three-year paid internship, the Air Force provides tuition for the participants to complete their Master of Science degree. A two-year on-the-job training program is also available for those who already have their master’s.
