Germanna and University of Virginia plan to team up on engineering program

Learn about plans for Germanna's new engineering program at 6 p.m., Tuesday, April 14 at the Fredericksburg Campus ...

Virginia community colleges are partnering with the University of Virginia to increase the number of engineering graduates.

James Groves, assistant dean of research and outreach at U.Va.'s School of Engineering and Applied Science, will make presentations on the program at Germanna Community College this week and next.

Called "Produced in Virginia," the program uses the community college system as a pipeline for students into U.Va. for its Bachelor of Science degree in engineering.

Germanna plans to offer an associate of science in engineering that will be aligned with the U.Va. program starting this fall.

Groves' presentation will take place on Tuesday, April 14, 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m. in Room 212 of Dickinson Building at the Fredericksburg Area Campus in Spotsylvania.
