Continuing and Professional Education
As part of Virginia Tech Outreach and International Affairs, Continuing and Professional Education helps Virginia Tech’s outstanding faculty and researchers reach new audiences across the globe.
We work with academics, governmental organizations, and corporate thought leaders interested in designing programs that transform individuals, organizations, and communities through innovative learning experiences.
We connect the university’s faculty members and research to people throughout the world who long to expand their horizons. We plan conferences, seminars, and workshops that meet each group’s unique needs and learning styles. And we enrich our participants’ learning experiences so they gain lifelong knowledge and understanding.
Continuing and Professional Education at Virginia Tech collaborates with the university’s teaching and research faculty, as well as leaders in education, government, business, and the community.
We provide over 450 customized programs that promote excellence in numerous professional fields. The mission of CPE is to cultivate the exchange of knowledge and experience between Virginia Tech and its partners in the commonwealth and beyond. We address the needs of professionals, organizations, and communities through experiential learning and research dissemination activities.
CPE’s courses and programs are designed to bestow students with the necessary skills to enhance their knowledge and performance in the workforce. Our courses cover everything from modeling and engineering to professional development and strategies for success. In addition to these courses, CPE also hosts research conferences, offers certificate programs, and holds on-site educational events.
