(This amendment will provide $3,029,000 and 32 positions for Virginia Tech to meet growing enrollments in high-demand fields, such as computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering. Due to the demand for these programs, student to faculty ratios have increased to an exceptionally high level of about 50 to 1. The funds would address this problem, and also would support graduate program growth in Northern Virginia and growth in distance learning technology courses.)
