Laying the groundwork
Virginia Tech unites companies with researchers and is a pipeline of talent to industry. The Intelligent Infrastructure and Construction Complex will leverage technology to solve infrastructure challenges in ways that are innovative, human-centered, and cost-effective.
The complex’s two new buildings and smart dining facility and our nearby transit hub will
- Bring together change agents from many disciplines
- Support growth in the Myers-Lawson School of Construction
- Serve as a new front door to the university, highlighting the importance of infrastructure education
“The demand for our students is just incredible. When you’re placing 100 percent of the graduating students, who have multiple offers, that is the truest indicator of success.”
John Lawson ’75, president and CEO of W.M. Jordan Company Inc.
A record of excellence
The Myers-Lawson School of Construction’s research and education focus on problems faced by industry and society. Its programs, and graduates, are thriving.
- The Class of 2016's average starting salary was $61,000, up 11 percent from 2014.
- Students reported up to 7 job offers before graduation.
- The number of students enrolled in the Department of Building Construction, Vecellio Construction Engineering and Management Program, and Program in Real Estate has more than doubled in five years.
The Intelligent Infrastructure and Construction Complex is part of a university-wide focus on integrating technology into infrastructure — the physical fabric of society. By 2022, we plan to have 2,000 students engaged in smart design and construction, smart roads, and autonomous vehicles across land, air, and water.
