Doctoral Open House

Open House

Fall 2021 Open House for Prospective PhD Students

Thank you for your interest in the Engineering Education Program Virginia Tech!  Choosing a graduate program is an important decision.  We are delighted that Virginia Tech is among your list of possibilities. Virginia Tech's Ph.D. program in engineering education seeks to prepare students for successful careers in research, academia, and industry by offering a program that is balanced between rigorous research and real world application.

To help you gather information about our program, we will be hosting an in-person, on-campus open house Thursday, Oct. 28 to Friday Oct. 29. The Thursday afternoon sessions will be offered in hybrid mode, so those not able to join us on-campus can join us virtually. 

Whether on-campus or virtual, open house attendees will have the opportunity to learn about our program and the faculty and students who make up our close community. The open house will feature an overview of the Engineering Education Ph.D. program and current areas of research in the department. Attendees at the on-campus event will have opportunities for discussion with faculty and current students.

A limited number of travel grants (for travel within the US) are available to attend the On-Campus Open House. 

An application fee waiver will be available to participants who attend either full event.
