Research is a strength of West Point and provides context to the classroom. It is central to a vibrant and relevent faculty and is one way West Point connects to the Army and to the Nation. Our students are driven, our faculty are world-class, and the Army applies that combination to its most difficult problems.
West Point faculty and student researchers regularly produce and present scholarly works (books, journals, conferences), and cadets routinely win Best Paper Awards at national and international graduate-level conferences. Members of our faculty hold fellowships and chairmanships in their disciplines with national organizations, and our products are deployed to the soldier.
