The Land Development Design Initiative (LDDI) is a collaborative effort of the Via Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech with industry practitioners. The three primary objectives of LDDI are:

  1. Improving land development design education, including increasing student awareness of land development design as a career path
  2. Increasing interaction between practitioners and undergraduate civil engineering students at Virginia Tech
  3. Enhancing research efforts in the land development area

The Initiative has made significant strides to improve land development design education at Virginia Tech and to increase student awareness of land development design as a career path. The Initiative also promotes the interaction between students and practitioners. LDDI now involves more than 170 engineering and land development firms, many of which provide financial support. Regarding corporate sponsorships, LDDI is an Virginia Tech Academic Partnership Program, a program specifically aimed at encouraging corporate/academic collaboration.  As such, corporate sponsorships are not tax-deductible, but varying levels of sponsorships carry different types of benefits to the sponsors themselves.  Click the button to learn more...
