Message from the Chair

Thank you for taking a moment to visit the web site of the Department of Technology at Virginia State University. The Department offers bachelor’s degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering Technology, Information Logistics Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, and certifications in Project Management and Enterprise Systems (SAP TERP10). Engineering Technology area of study is exciting, challenging, and integral to today’s economy both locally and globally.

As the Department Chair, I am committed to make the Department of Technology programs relevant, current and valuable to our students in teaching, research and service. Our graduates of all programs are highly sought after and are very successful in both industry and government agencies. Our graduates are employed by leading companies and governmental entities for example, Dominion Power, Bank of America, Owens and Minor, Wal-Mart, UPS, FeDeX, the Federal Reserve Bank, Department of Defense, local municipalities and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our active Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC) bridges the programs offerings with industry needs. Financial and intellectual support of our stakeholders including students, alumni, and industrial partners are essential, and we will work to improve these relationships in the years to come.

I hope you will take a few moments to peruse our web site for information on our academic programs, faculty, and students accomplishments and your future successes can be enhanced by what you make of the opportunities in the Department of Technology.
