Military and Veteran Support
At Engility we provide critical support to our country’s military and intelligence services every day. Nearly 30 percent of our employees are veterans, and giving back to the veteran community is a core focus of Engility Serves, our program for making a difference in our communities.
Building Homes for Heroes

Each year, we host a two-week internship for high school and college engineers to solve "real-life" situations using their advanced mathematic and analytic skills. The experience is part of the WeStep program that partners high school engineers with community businesses to provide students with professional experiences. This year, previous participants, now in college, returned for the internship.
