Virginia Tech College of Engineering is partnering with universities in Virginia to help position students for mid-level and advanced positions in industries related to computing technology.

By establishing a pathway of foundational courses at partner universities, currently enrolled undergraduate students can be prepared for early admission to Virginia Tech’s MEng degree in Computer Science & Applications or Computer Engineering, as early as spring of their junior year. 

By outlining a clear pathway and course equivalencies, both the engineering and liberal arts student are able to participate in Virginia’s Tech Talent Pipeline.  Many students will find that they can complete their MEng degree with just one extra year. 

Students at our partner universities who are admitted to the program will be able to advance their professional careers through Virginia Tech’s strong industry connections in the DC Metro Area and Blacksburg. Our stellar faculty at Virginia Tech’s Innovation Campus and in Blacksburg, will prepare students to excel in the computing field and contribute to emerging technologies.

Partnering Universities:

  • Christopher Newport University
  • Hollins University
  • James Madison University
  • Radford University
  • University of Mary Washington
