And, Arlington and Virginia are not resting on our laurels. Virginia’s Tech Talent Investment Program is committing more than $2 billion to expand Virginia’s tech talent pipeline with a plan to generate 32,000 more computer science graduates over the next 20 years. Marymount University Tech Set Program will connect economically disadvantaged students to innovation internships and work readiness, building on the university’s long history of integrating innovation and technology in its business school. George Mason University's Institute for Digital Innovation is an element of Mason’s Arlington campus that will host 15,000 undergrad and graduate students in computer science and related fields, and host businesses and community groups. Right across Arlington's border in Alexandria, Virginia Tech Innovation Campus, is scheduled to open in 2024, and will enroll 750 masters and 200 doctoral students annually in computer science and engineering.
Arlington is already an innovation hub, and with these developments on the horizon, the future looks even brighter for Arlington’s businesses and innovative workforce.
