Fall 2023 Open House for Prospective Ph.D. Students

Thank you for your interest in the Engineering Education Program at 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 research and real world application.

To help you gather information about our program, we will be hosting two virtual open house events, Wednesday, Nov 1, 8:30-10am ET and Thursday, Nov 2, 6-7:30pm ET.  On Thursday, Nov 2, we will also host an in-person event from 3:30-5pm on the Blacksburg Campus for those able to visit campus. Guests attending the in-person event are also invited to attend our Graduate Seminar on Friday, Nov 3 at 10am ET.  

Whether attending virtually or in-person, open house attendees will have the opportunity to learn about our program and the faculty and students who make up our close community. Each open house will feature an overview of the Engineering Education Ph.D. and Certificate Programs and current areas of research in the department, with an opportunity for discussion with faculty and current students.

An application fee waiver for the ENGE PhD program will be available to participants who attend any of the events.

Applicants to the ENGE PhD program who are offered admission for Fall 2024 will be eligible for a travel grant to visit campus during Spring 2024.
