Engineering Internships - Central Virginia Community College


With over twenty percent of its workforce tied to manufacturing and technology, Virginia's Region 2000 continues to experience an accelerated demand for engineers and skilled laborers. AREVA's former CEO, Tom Christopher, estimates that the nuclear power firm will require 800 additional engineers, 400 of whom would be in Lynchburg, over the next five years. According to Christopher, "Our needs and those of other local companies cannot be satisfied without changes in the number of engineers produced by the education system. We rely heavily on the Virginia Region 2000 workforce. The talent is here, we just have to provide the educational opportunities in order to meet the demands."

Because Region 2000 employers prefer hiring local talent for local jobs, many have expressed interest in hiring local engineering students for their engineering internship positions. Information about participating companies' opportunities is available below:
