ACC Rio Grande houses Army Future Command’s Software Factory

The Software Factory will build on the college’s Computer Science/Information Technology programs and will offer specialized training for new technologies such as data science and artificial intelligence, creating an opportunity for students and soldiers to work side by side to solve real-life problems through advanced software development processes.

Last week, the Army Future’s Command celebrated the grand opening of their new flagship at ACC Rio Grande’s central campus in Austin, Texas.  AFC sits directly in the center of the historic building, occupying levels 2 and 3. Originally designated to be the library, the design team worked hand-in-hand with ACC’s Project Manager and Army Future’s Command to quickly reprogram and conceptualize AFC’s new digs.

Walls needed to be relocated for the addition of private offices and conference rooms, new furniture specifications were implemented and security access had to be integrated into the corridors and stairwells as the 2nd floor is shared with ACC and needed to be separated completely.

Studio8 is continuing to work with the Army Futures in expanding their facilities within the campus.
