U.Va. Engineers PRODUCED in Virginia

 

 

The Engineers PRODUCED in Virginia program allows students in Virginia to earn an Associate of Science in Engineering degree (or equivalent) from their local community college and then a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from the University of Virginia,  without relocating to Charlottesville for their studies.

U.Va. courses and degrees are available online via live, interactive webcasts during the day. Students are choosing the PRODUCED program because they can:
  • Study while also working part-time for great engineering employers across Virginia.
  • Pay for their U.Va. education with money earned in long-term, paid engineering internships.
  • Graduate from U.Va. with no debt, paying for college with money earned from paid internships.
  • Build their resumes with two to three years of ongoing engineering work experience.
  • Engage in top quality courses and degree programs taught online by U.Va. faculty.
  • Participate in their classes using U.Va.’s live, interactive learning environment.
  • Connect with other PRODUCED students during and after class using U.Va.’s live, interactive learning environment.
  • Learn valuable distributed communication skills that give them a “leg up” in today’s globally-connected workplace.
  • Position themselves at the front of the hiring line well before graduation, through early employer connections facilitated by the program.

 

In addition to the great opportunities offered online by PRODUCED, students in the program will also be invited to Charlottesville and the heart of the U.Va. education community for selected educational opportunities.  Through these visits to Grounds, students will connect with fellow students in the PRODUCED program, with faculty instructors, with selected educational experiences, and with traditions that help to define today’s highly-regarded U.Va. education.
