How the Program Works
CGEP delivers graduate engineering courses to students located across the Commonwealth of Virginia and beyond.
To earn a degree using the course offerings of CGEP, an individual must apply for admission to and be accepted into a degree program at one of the six CGEP universities. The university that accepts an individual into a degree program becomes that student’s "home institution."
An up-to-date listing of the available degrees and application processes can be found through the State CGEP web site at cgep.virginia.gov.
Virginia Tech Program Offerings
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.
