Industry Partner

The New River Community College Engineering Design Technology program partners with multiple local, national and international corporations including companies such as Phoenix Integration, a D.O.D. contractor/software and product developer." NRCC joins with schools such as MIT, Stanford, Purdue University, Pennsylvania State University, Virginia Tech Aerospace and Ocean Engineering and a host of others: PHOENIX INTEGRATION.

In addition, New River's Engineering Design program has worked with and partnered with companies such as VOLVO, Federal Mogul, AMTEK, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, New Port News Shipyard, BAE.


3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing at NRCC

New River Community College has a proven history of partnering with businesses and industries to provide cutting-edge training and re-training for existing workers and also providing a pool of new applicants who have experience with the latest technologies.

Come to our state of the art Engineering Design lab at our one of a kind site in Uptown Christiansburg (formerly NRV Mall) and let us show you our new equipment and describe how we collaborate to provide real - world experience to our talented students and to enhance the productivity of your business.


We have multiple 3D printing type technologies which include:

Sample Parts Produced by the ProJet

We also have a Dimension BST 768 Rapid Prototype (ABS Plastic) 3D Printer.

Sample Parts Produced by the BST

All of 3D printers produce fully functional 3D prototypes that allow for:

  • Product cost reduction
  • Vacuum forming
  • Marketing tools
  • Product markups
  • Testing of form, fit and function
  • Proving out of designs
  • Creating concept tooling

Parvus Corporation, a strategic systems engineering and development partner for aerospace, defense, transportation, and industry, builds model parts with a Dimension 3D Printer, reducing design time from five weeks to just one week. That equipment has helped the company expand its engineering capacity by making better use of staff and production resources.
