The Loudoun Campus of Northern Virginia Community College will offer two engineering degrees starting with the fall 2015 semester.
Engineering was added to meet the demand from students who live or work near the Loudoun Campus. Currently, nearly 300 students who identify NOVA-Loudoun as their home campus are driving to other NOVA campuses to pursue engineering degrees. Offering engineering at the Loudoun Campus will save current and future students considerable travel time and expense.
The engineering associate degree prepares students to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor’s degree in such fields as mechanical engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, aeronautical engineering, and naval architecture/marine engineering.
Another degree specializing in electrical engineering will also be offered at the Loudoun Campus starting with the fall semester.
To learn more about degrees and certificates available at NOVA, go to www.nvcc.edu/catalog and select “Programs of Study.”
New students should apply to NOVA as soon as possible to allow plenty of time to take placement tests and attend student orientation before the fall semester starts Aug. 24.
