College History

History

The school was founded at the sub-college level Montgomery Preparatory School of WVU in 1895. In 1917 it was separated from WVU and renamed the West Virginia Trade School. Next, in 1921, it reached the junior college level as the New River State School. It became a four-year college as New River State College in 1931 and was renamed the West Virginia Institute of Technology in 1941. It began to grant degrees in engineering in 1952. The school added a community college in 1966 and it began to grant the master's degree in engineering in 1978. In 1996 the college became a regional campus of West Virginia University. On July 1, 2007, WVU Tech became a full division of WVU. While several departments on campus report directly to WVU, oversight of all academic areas has remained on Tech's main campus. WVU Tech was previously associated with the Community & Technical College at WVU Tech. As of May 2009, the two are separate institutions but share the same campus. To help differentiate the two schools, a new name of Bridgemont Community and Technical College was announced for the CTC in May 2009.
