Welcome to AAII

Academic Applications International traces its academic legacy to the founding of Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech in 1968 by action of the Board of Visitors. The AAII corporate lineage began a decade later when Virginia State Corporation Commission incorporation was obtained in 1979.

AAII seeks to advance the academic and academic application aspects of Systems Thinking, Engineering, and Analysis (STEA), sometimes called STEM for grownups. Academic content is offered through thousands of online pages in four Sections to academically inclined individuals, academic institutions, professional societies, and enterprises, based on mutual interest in advancing STEA “know-how” for application within “know-what” domains.

The purpose of this AAII website is to showcase and offer online access to selected SE technical and academic STEA materials that are poised to be of value for use by individuals at no cost. These same materials may be adopted for sponsored instructional use at a low cost.
