CVCC/UVA Engineering Partnership
Central Virginia Community College and the University of Virginia, in cooperation with Region 2000 businesses, formed a
partnership which provides a four-year engineering degree within Region 2000. CVCC established an Associate of Science in
Engineering curriculum that satisfies The University of Virginia's (UVA's) and Virginia Tech's (VT's) prerequisites for
third-year entry into their respective Schools of Engineering. While some students choose to attend third- and fourth-year
classes on UVA or VT campuses, UVA makes its curriculum available within the Lynchburg area. This means Region 2000
students need not leave home to earn a respected UVA engineering degree. The degree offering is Engineering Science, an
interdisciplinary study with two tracks: mechatronics and advanced materials.
