CVCC Campus in Summer

CVCC/UVA Engineering Partnership

Central Virginia Community College and the University of Virginia, in cooperation with Region 2000 businesses, formed a partnership which provides a four-year engineering degree within Region 2000. CVCC established an Associate of Science in Engineering curriculum that satisfies The University of Virginia's (UVA's) and Virginia Tech's (VT's) prerequisites for third-year entry into their respective Schools of Engineering. While some students choose to attend third- and fourth-year classes on UVA or VT campuses, UVA makes its curriculum available within the Lynchburg area. This means Region 2000 students need not leave home to earn a respected UVA engineering degree. The degree offering is Engineering Science, an interdisciplinary study with two tracks: mechatronics and advanced materials.

Step #1:   Apply for admission to Central Virginia Community College. Web applications may be found

and registration.

students in this program. Sponsorships may include: Tuition assistance, books, fees, co-op
opportunities, part-time jobs, and/or full time careers with the company. A complete list of
