2 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Blacksburg, VA

If you like using your hands to solve problems, you’ll fit right in at Virginia Tech where “hands on, minds on” is a way of life. To gain valuable engineering experience get involved with one of the 15-student project teams. These teams design and build autonomous sailboats, space mining robots, and solar powered houses and enter them into competitions. At the Ware Lab students can draft up design plans using sophisticated software, cut and weld parts, and ultimately assemble the creation in a project bay. When you’re not busy building boats and ‘bots you’re taking classes in Goodwin Hall. Or, if you work as a research assistant, you can help professors carry out cutting-edge studies in one of the building’s many robotics, aerospace, and biological labs. Students who want to share a common living space with other future engineers live in Galileo or Hypatia. In these living learning communities you can access mentoring, tutoring and social activities tailored to your needs and interests as an engineering major.
