EWU ROTC Cadet Selected for Army Test & Evaluation Command Internship

Congratulations to Cadet Sam Coutts for being selected for an internship with the Army Test & Evaluation Command (ATEC).

ATEC plans, integrates, and conducts experiments, developmental testing, independent operational testing, and independent evaluations and assessments to provide essential information to acquisition decision makers and commanders.  ATEC conducts tests every day across 5 1/2 million acres of diverse terrain.   Cadet Coutts, who is currently a senior at Eastern Washington University (EWU) studying Engineering, will travel this summer to Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland where he will intern as an assistant test officer.

Cadet Coutts was selected for the ATEC internship through a Cadet Command sponsored competitive nomination process open to only Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors.  In addition to needing to be a STEM major, Cadet Coutts had to demonstrate academic excellence, physical fitness, and high character.  Congratulations to Cadet Coutts for being selected to this outstanding internship
