A Brief Description of the Two Engineering Programs at VSU

About Engineering Studies

Engineers have the power to shape the future of the world. They design and build machines and other structures and use mathematical and scientific principles, technological tools and practical experience to solve real-world problems. Students with an engineering degree can choose from a wide variety of careers in specialized areas such as aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering and more.

Engineering Studies at Valdosta State University

The engineering studies program at Valdosta State University is a two-year program in which students complete work toward a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering, then transfer to a college that offers a four-year degree program. The university participates in the Regents’ Engineering Pathway Program (REPP), a partnership with the Georgia Institute of Technology and other engineering schools in Georgia. Many students transfer to Georgia Tech, University of Georgia, Kennesaw State University, Georgia Southern University, Mercer University, or other universities upon completion of their studies at Valdosta State. Other students have transferred to Auburn University, University of Florida, Florida State University, and many other universities nationwide. While on the Valdosta State campus, engineering studies students have access to state-of-the-art classrooms, computer hardware and software, a variety of audio-visual systems, lab equipment such as 3-D printers and more.
