Well, with spacenoids joining the military at age 15, I would say that Nina
had at least 6 years of eduction/working experience to get good enough to
design Mobile Suits. And CAD would play a significant role in this, also. As
to her not appearing to be smart at all, I would say that is just standard
stereotyping. I've notice that most females in Gundam aren't shown to be
particularly intelligent, even when their character description says so.
