Rooted in our core values, these partnerships reflect our dedication to creating a positive impact on the community.


Baja SAE Logo

Baja SAE

Sargent Aerospace & Defense is proud to have sponsored Baja SAE - an event where universities from all over the world compete to design, build, and race single seat all terrain cars. In 2022, Sargent sponsored the Suspension portion of the Baja SAE Arizona event at the Caterpillar Proving Grounds in Green Valley, AZ.

Out of only a handful of people that organized this incredible competition, three of them were Sargent employees. Our team members put in countless hours over many months to make it a memorable event. The students who competed in this competition did a fantastic job & are a great example of the type of hands-on engineers we are looking for at Sargent!

Sargent Aerospace & Defense has proudly partnered with Southern Arizona Manufacturing Partners (SAMP) over the last several years. SAMP is an industry-led initiative, partnering with education and the public sector, to develop the manufacturing workforce of the future. They work to place students who have met internship criteria with businesses, so that they can gain real-life skills they need to succeed in today’s manufacturing industry.

Over the years, Sargent has been proud to host and develop eager students interested in learning about the world of machining. While working with the SAMP program we have built professional relationships with Pima Community College, Desert View High School, Tucson Magnet High School, and Arizona@Work Pima County. We have had several team members join us through the SAMP program and continue to develop their careers with Sargent after completing school.

Pima Community College

Sargent Aerospace & Defense has worked with Pima Community College in the past with the SAMP program, but more recently have been working to also engage with the engineering students. One of the ways we do this is with one of our engineering leaders participating on the External Steering Committee for the CAD Department. This committee works together to create programs and curriculum to support local businesses. Outside of meeting future engineers, Pima has provided excellent continued education opportunities for our current engineers with their hydraulics focused classes. We are excited to see what another year brings while we expand this partnership with students enrolled in their automation classes.
