Executive Engineer in Residence 


The Executive Engineer in Residence Program at VCU Engineering, launched in January 2023, is designed to bridge the gap between the current curriculum and real-world practices giving VCU engineering students another opportunity to connect with engineering experts and leaders. Through this program, a leader is invited to share their expertise with VCU Engineering students, faculty and staff to strengthen the relationship between the college and industry-leading businesses building connections and expertise.

Executives in Residence will: 

  • Share knowledge and provide industry, professional and leadership expertise. 
  • Engage with faculty by consulting and collaborating on research and other projects. 
  • Engage with students and contribute to their personal and professional development. 
  • Assist with referrals and insight for future engineering curriculum and programming. 

VCU Engineering will recognize the Executive Engineer in Residence:

  • Provide introductions to internal key stakeholders with the Executive Engineer in Residence’s identified areas of interest. 
  • Access to University resources. 
  • Publish information about the Executive Engineer in Residence.
