A rendering for the Virginia Tech Innovation Campus
According to, "The program will begin in the fall, in Falls Church and other space in Alexandria. The first Potomac Yard campus building is set for completion in 2024. When complete in about 10 years, the campus will enroll 750 master’s candidates, and hundreds of doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows, according to Virginia Tech." Collins said, "I think it’s just a fantastic, beautiful location. Its proximity to Amazon is not lost on me. That’s also quite important. This is really a breakthrough, I think, for this area." As per, "The university also has said the Innovation Campus will triple its footprint in Northern Virginia. Collins said the campus could offer education in the areas of computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, cybersecurity, and policy."
