CGEP delivers graduate engineering courses to students located across the Commonwealth of Virginia and beyond. Most courses are delivered simultaneously to students on-campus (Blacksburg, Northern Virginia or both) and off-campus via Webex.
An up-to-date listing of the available degrees and application processes can be found through CGEP’s web site .
Applying to the Virginia Tech graduate school under the Commonwealth Campus status enables students to take 12 semester hours before formal acceptance into a master's degree program. Each University offers specific master's degrees with little overlap. This program offers an excellent opportunity for working engineers to update skills or learn about a new technology.
