General Discussion for SMART Scholarship Recipients
The SMART scholarship’s website lists facilities by STEM discipline desired. Mechanical engineering is popular throughout a ton of facilities in all service branches.
Even though there may be a lot of facilities that take in mechanical engineers, the number positions they have available can vary a lot. For example, ARDEC probably takes in quite a few mechanical engineers because they do a lot of work with various mechanical systems, whereas Marine Corp Systems Command, even though they work on a few mechanical related projects such as light armored vehicles, they only take in about one mechanical engineer from SMART each year because they have more focus into other areas.
