“Find Out More” Events

We invite you to read about the Accelerated Master’s Program in Systems Engineering on our web site and then “Find Out More” face-to-face at one of our AMP information events or a class visit. In addition to presentations and Q & A, events usually include an opportunity for prospective students to talk with current students or AMP alumni. You will learn about the Program and gain insight into their perspectives on the experience and the benefits of the AMP.

Please request a class visit or register to attend information events via a short online form, or email accmp@virginia.edu.
