Fellowships for Off-Campus Students
ECE offers several fellowship opportunities for full-time extended-campus students. See financial aid.
ECE offers masters programs through several extended-campus programs:
- National Capital Region
- Commonwealth Graduate Engineering Program
- MIT online program
- VT-Middle East and North Africa Graduate Program (VT-MENA)
- Onsite, corporate programs, including Dahlgren, Hampton Roads, and Lockheed-Martin.
Extended-campus students follow the same admissions procedures and minimum requirements as on-campus students.
The largest extended-campus master's degree program serves engineers in the nation's capital region, and is located at the Northern Virginia Center (NVC) at Falls Church and the Advanced Research Institute (ARI). ECE facilities include classrooms, laboratories and a library. Evening classes are offered in ECE each semester, in a combination of
- on-site offerings,
- live 2-way video offerings from our Blacksburg campus,
- and online classes.
The ECE department has faculty members stationed in The National Capital Region and conducts a growing Ph.D. program.
Other Virginia Locations
Commonwealth Graduate Engineering Program
About a third of the extended-campus masters degree students study at 13 other extended-campus sites, through the Commonwealth Graduate Engineering Program (CGEP). The CGEP offers qualified students the opportunity to earn an MSEE or an MSCPE through televised classes from five universities in Virginia. Classes are delivered live, by two-way video, in the late afternoon and evening.
Commonwealth Campus Program
Non-degree students may take classes through the Commonwealth Campus program.
ECE offers a number of online courses as part of our degree programs. We also offer an exclusively online program leading to graduate certificates or a Masters of Information Technology (MIT) Degree. The MIT program offers ECE modules in communications, networking and computer engineering. Other components of the interdisciplinary program are software development, business information systems, and decision support systems. The MIT program is also available on-site at the National Capital Region campus. For more information, visit the MIT web site.
