In 2019, AFIT will celebrate its 100th Anniversary with the theme “A Century of Education Excellence: Inspiration to Innovation.”
In honor of that milestone, we are planning several events to highlight the impact our faculty, staff, students and alumni made over the last century and explore their current efforts to build and sustain the Joint Force’s unmatched twenty-first century military advantages across the globe.
We hope you will consider joining us at the centennial events as we celebrate AFIT and the impact it has had on aerospace and airpower education over the last one hundred years!
