Academic Outreach

Lockheed Martin Ethics & Business Conduct is committed to supporting business ethics awareness in our colleges and universities, contributing to the ethical development of the future workforce and strengthening our academic partnerships.

The  3rd Annual 2020 Ethics in Engineering Case Competition was held at the Lockheed Martin Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE) on Feb. 27-28, 2020.   Twenty-one colleges and universities, each represented by a two-student team, presented their solutions to a case involving ethical, business and engineering dilemmas. The event also provided opportunities for the visiting students to learn about Lockheed Martin and its technologies, including tours at the GEOC and Global Vision Center in Crystal City.

At least one of the student competitors must be an engineering major.
