Fall 2019 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 are hosting both an On-Campus Open House and a Virtual Open House for prospective PhD students.

The annual Fall (On-Campus) Open House is scheduled for October 31st and November 1st, and will afford visiting students the opportunity to learn a great deal about our program and the faculty and students who make up our close community.  The Open House will include current faculty research presentations, a poster session on current student research, and a seminar given by a leader in the engineering education field.  Visitors will also have the chance to meet with faculty to discuss personal research interests and to participate in a relaxed discussion with our current graduate students.  The events will begin at 3:00 p.m.  on Thursday, October 31st and conclude at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 1st. 

The two hour Virtual Open House will take place on November 7, Thursday; please watch out for an announcement regarding time.  The virtual open house will feature an overview of the Engineering Education Ph.D. program and current areas of research in the department.  Participants will have a chance to interact with faculty and current students through separate panel discussions.
