Online Graduate Programs Overview

Engineering Online Learning degrees are offered through several programs that act as vehicles for earning degrees from Virginia Tech and affiliated universities. The courses are available in Blacksburg, Northern Virginia and Online. We currently offer three programs entirely online, the Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering, the Master’s of Information Technology, and Master of Science in Ocean Engineering. If you are interested in doctorate programs or are affiliated with the National Institute for Aerospace (NIA), please read about the offerings via NIA.
