Why are engineers some of the most in-demand professionals in the world today? You can find out why during the 2019 Engineering Open House at the University of Virginia School of Engineering.
All members of the public are welcome to attend Open House and learn how an engineering education can lead to an exciting, meaningful career. Engineers are leaders who make the world a better place by creating knowledge and technologies to advance every aspect of human life. At UVA, our engineers are developing medical technologies to treat and cure some of the world’s most devastating diseases; making it possible for autonomous systems such as self-driving cars to become part of everyday reality; securing computer systems worldwide from cyberattacks; and helping communities mitigate waste and deal with climate change.
During UVA Engineering’s Open House on April 6, participants will learn about UVA’s admission process, meet our students and faculty, and see the exciting opportunities awaiting them here.
Our core values for student success and excellence through diversity are evident: UVA Engineering is the top public engineering school in the country for the graduation rate of our undergraduate engineers, which means the vast majority of our students earn their bachelor’s degrees within four years. We are also the No. 1 engineering school in the country for the four-year graduation rate for African-American students and Hispanic students. We are the top public engineering school in the United States, among schools with more than 75 engineering graduates, for the percentage of women earning engineering degrees. Our graduates routinely go on to earn salaries above national averages and serve in important roles in corporations, governmental agencies and other organizations because they learn not only the technical skills to be excellent in their chosen fields, but also the judgment, communications and leadership skills employers covet.
