Raytheon Technologies and Virginia Tech began a
strategic relationship in 2015 with a $1M research
and education agreement to help fund joint research,
scholarships, and experiential learning opportunities
in the university‘s College of Engineering. To
date, the company has funded 24 undergraduate
capstone teams providing students with
projects shaped from real-world technical challenges.
Northrop Grumman’s deep commitment to the
university is reflected in their support of military
leadership education in Virginia Tech’s Corps of
Cadets, fundamental and applied engineering
research collaborations, and numerous student
initiatives, especially those focused on diversity and
Boeing’s most recent gift of $3M to Virginia Tech’s
Calhoun Honors Discovery Program allows students
to engage in collaborative, transdisciplinary projects.
The financial support includes funding for student
scholarships, experiential-learning grants, and salary
support for program faculty.
In 2016, Virginia Tech and Lockheed Martin signed
a master research agreement to foster increased
research collaboration, greater recruiting initiatives,
and technical engagement in Virginia Tech programs.
