NORFOLK, Va. (WDBJ) – Old Dominion University announced Thursday that it will launch the first four-year manufacturing engineering technology degree at its Norfolk campus and at a satellite site of the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research at Danville.
The new program will be part of the Department of Engineering and Technology at Batten College of Engineering and Technology.
IALR will host third- and fourth-year undergraduate courses for ODU’s Bachelor of Manufacturing Engineering Technology program at its Danville campus. Courses will be offered in person, remotely or hybrid.
Southern Virginia students can also enter the program in a variety of ways, including community colleges; the IALR-funded Academy of Engineering and Technology; professional and technical dual registration programs; and tenured workers.
“This partnership reinforces Old Dominion University‘s commitment to workforce development and leadership in the maritime industry,” said ODU President Brian O. Hemphill, Ph.D. “Students across Virginia will be able to learn the skills needed to fill critical defense jobs, aligning talent with opportunity.”
