About the Academy for Engineering & Technology

Students enrolled in the Academy for Engineering and Technology (AET) dual enrollment program, which is also housed at IALR, have the opportunity to participate in engineering, math and English courses to earn college credits from Danville Community College. The two-year engineering curriculum consists of courses that focus on theory and design. Additionally, students will also participate in many experiential learning activities throughout the curriculum to apply their academic knowledge to on-the-job situations. The program is supported by a partnership between IALR, Danville Community College, Pittsylvania County Schools and Danville Public Schools.
