Tech Talent Investment Program

Virginia has committed $235 million in TTIP funding to Mason to increase the number of BS and MS graduates in the key fields of computer science, applied computer science, computer engineering, and software engineering.

Virginia's Tech Talent Investment Program (TTIP) is a state-wide program to invest in expanding state computer science, computer engineering, and software engineering degrees over a 20-year period. The Commonwealth of Virginia, donors, and corporate partners are coming together to invest over $2 billion in Virginia's tech talent pipeline, from childhood education through to degrees and internships.

Ambitious Goals

George Mason University has committed to increasing graduates in both undergraduate and graduate computing programs to almost 16,000 students. This program, started in 2019 and running until 2039, will see roughly 380 additional degree recipients each year. This will more than double the size of Mason's related degree programs by 2024.
