Vermont Tech and the Community College of Vermont have announced a partnership that will guarantee certain CCV graduates admission to Vermont Tech. The new pathway allows students that have earned CCV's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) studies associate's degree to enter Vermont Tech's Renewable Energy Bachelor of Science degree program.

At a press conference on Wednesday, September 10, Vermont Tech announced that students majoring in aviation now have an unusual airplane in which to learn rare flying skills.  Vermont Tech’s Professional Pilot Technology program, in partnership with the Vermont Flight Academy, received a Twin Seabee amphibious aircraft as a donation from a southern California couple. The donation of this aircraft has made Vermont Tech the first college in the U.S. to offer training in multi-engine seaplanes, in addition to single-engine seaplanes. The Twin Seabee is the sixth airplane donated to the program, making up about 30% of the fleet. The new plane, which is an amphibious aircraft that operates on both land and water, and which had a cameo in the 1980 hit movie "Caddyshack", was unveiled at the press conference. Read more...


Vermont Tech’s satellite—its first ever—is one of hundreds of tiny spacecraft projects under development that may change how we explore the solar system. This particular one won’t travel far, but after being launched into Earth orbit last November, the Vermont Lunar CubeSat began testing navigational equipment that, in theory, could guide it to the moon. If all goes well, in a few years VTC professor Carl Brandon and his team will try to turn theory to reality with a slightly larger version.  Learn more about CubeSats and VTC's specifically, in this Air & Space Magazine article.


Between her first and second years of civil-engineering studies at Vermont Technical College in Randolph, Sarah Rosenzweig is spending five months dangling in safety harnesses from four-story-high supports, carrying building materials weighing half her 104 pounds and otherwise learning the ropes of bridge construction on and around the span that carries the northbound lanes of Interstate 91 across Route 44 and Mill Brook. Out of 40 Lane employees and about 15 subcontract workers, Rosenzweig is the only woman on the Windsor site this summer. Learn more about Sarah in this Valley News article.
