Hands-on Learning

One of the reasons so many students choose the VCU School of Engineering is the opportunity for hands-on learning: putting into practice what they have learned in the classroom.

From participating in research projects — often in collaboration with faculty and industry — and contributing to design teams to going on rounds with doctors at the VCU Medical Center and working in labs, our students graduate with valuable experience to take them into the workforce or graduate schools.

In addition, many of our programs require an internship experience. But beyond requirements, our students are eager to work with real-world problems and find real-world solutions.
