Educating Engineers in Virginia

In the June issue of Virginia Business, Heather B. Hayes, in Bridging the Gap, addresses innovative strategies in training engineers in Virginia.

One example she cites: VCU is building a second engineering building largely with private donations. Situated next to a new business school building, the facility will allow total engineering enrollment to grow 68 percent to 2,000 students. Russ Jamison, the engineering school’s incoming dean, wants to develop programs with VCU’s business school, medical school and Center for Life Sciences Education.
