High School Outreach

The Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech is committed to offering a world-class computer science degree to as many students as possible.  As part of this commitment, we are eager to assist high school teachers and guidance counselors as they help students explore college and career opportunities.    Computer science is an exciting field with an incredible variety of career paths.  The links below offer some resources to help students and parents explore the possibilities.  Please feel free to contact us at csundergrad@cs.vt.edu for further information.
