Lockheed Martin Launchpad
On-Campus Technology and Innovation Incubator
Lockheed Martin has a longstanding partnership with Drexel University – sharing a common goal of preparing tomorrow’s workforce for technical innovation. As a result, the university has forged additional collaboration opportunities with Lockheed Martin, including an on-campus multipurpose space called the Lockheed Matin Launchpad. Programming will include experiential learning and research opportunities, tech talks, and networking events for students, faculty, and Lockheed Martin employees.
Managed by the Drexel Solutions Institute, the partnership will also explore research projects in materials science, advanced communication systems, and 3D modeling. These areas are essential for the future development and production of several Lockheed Martin mission portfolios in the Delaware Valley, including the Aegis Combat System, Long Range Discrimination Radar, and SPY-7 Radar.
Enhanced Co-Op Program
Lockheed Martin & Drexel University have partnered to offer a unique co-op experience to 1st year co-op students. The Lockheed Martin – Drexel University Enhanced co-op program offers an opportunity to interview once for all three of Drexel students’ co-op experiences!
Drexel students accepted into this program can participate in three engineering co-op rotations to better prepare them to pursue their career goals after graduation. This program follows the early-career Leadership Development Programs model at Lockheed Martin that offers exposure to multiple roles across the business broadens technical knowledge, and provides leadership training and networking opportunities.
