The College of Engineering has initiated the strategic planning process that will help the college focus and prioritize efforts over the coming years.
Virginia’s Restructured Higher Education Financial and Administrative Operations Act requires the college to update the plan every six years. Implementation of the College of Engineering's new strategic plan is expected to begin in Fall 2019.
Concurrently, the Office for Strategic Affairs has spent part of the past year actively engaging and collaborating with faculty, staff and students across Virginia Tech campus locations on priorities for Virginia Tech’s next strategic plan.
The College of Engineering’s faculty, staff, students, and alumni have had the opportunity to participate in the planning process through focused outreach over the course of the spring semester. These groups will continue to be engaged in the process.
The college’s strategic planning committee is responsible for executing the strategic planning process.
