Service or Branch: Air Force
Location: Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, NY
STEM Fields: Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Systems EngineeringA typical Air Force installation consists of operational facilities (e.g., hangars, flightlines), training facilities, support facilities, housing, and base-wide infrastructure (e.g., utility systems). It also includes natural infrastructure assets, such as air, space, land, and water resources. Installation engineering squadrons maintain the installation by the planning, acquiring, building, sustaining, managing, operating, and divesting of both natural and manmade infrastructure. These squadrons ensure installations have the natural infrastructure to support current and future missions and to maintain compliance with environmental requirements.
