CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Engineering and computer science are in-demand fields that offer a wide variety of career options. Those interested in exploring education options for these career fields are invited to John Tyler Community College on October 9, 2019, for Engineering Transfer Night. During the event, attendees will have the opportunities to explore Tyler’s programs and find out how starting in those programs can save them money on a bachelor’s degree. They will also learn about guaranteed admissions agreements, which help Tyler graduates seamlessly transfer to four-year colleges and universities to complete their bachelor’s degree. Plus, they will get to meet some of Tyler’s four-year college and university partners including Christopher Newport University, George Mason University, James Madison University, Old Dominion University, University of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia State University, and Virginia Tech.
Engineering Transfer Night begins at 6:00 p.m. with a session that offers insights into Tyler’s programs and services and highlights information high school students and their parents need to know. Then, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., attendees will have the opportunity to hear from a panel of university representatives, followed by group and individual question and answer sessions. All activities will take place in the Lynn Theatre inside the T Building at Tyler’s Midlothian Campus, located at 800 Charter Colony Parkway.
Engineering Transfer Night is free and open to high school students and their parents; current Tyler students; and anyone who has an interest in studying engineering and computer science.
