VSA working to create high-tech jobs and partnerships with area universities
“One of the reasons VSA chose to partner with the State of Oklahoma was the ability to integrate our company with the University of Oklahoma’s aviation and aerospace engineering program, as well as Oklahoma State University’s autonomous UAV program. We are proud to bring high tech jobs to the greater Oklahoma City area. Valkyrie’s goal is to create and maintain partnerships with the higher education system in Oklahoma, all the while developing and retaining students with the goal of moving them into the aerospace workforce as supported by Valkyrie Systems Aerospace,” said Steve Tafoya, Managing Partner of VSA.
“The Oklahoma Department of Commerce has worked with Valkyrie for nine months to bring this project to fruition,” said Deby Snodgrass, Oklahoma Secretary of Commerce and Tourism. “By locating in Oklahoma City, they will be in close proximity to other world-class companies and defense operations and near our research universities which will provide a pipeline of talent through numerous aerospace and UAS degree programs.”
