ERDC Projects


When you work with the ERDC, you have access to a diverse pool of student talent from four major disciplines: civil, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Our dedicated, emerging engineers offer you the flexibility and "outside the box" thinking to perform a wide range of tasks in a cost-efficient manner. The ERDC can assist you in all phases of a project, from conceptual blue-sky ideas to practical implementation. Your sponsorship will help students realize their potential and assist them in making valuable contributions to their fields, while at the same time, satisfying your objectives.

Benefits of Working With the ERDC:

  • Cost-effective project solutions
  • Recognition for supporting higher education and for supporting minority and underrepresented students
  • Employee recruiting opportunities
  • Opportunities to complete projects that have been delayed for lack of staffing
  • Access to university faculty experts
