VirginiaTech, ranked among the U.S. News Top 25 Public Universities, offers 250 degree programs through nine colleges and its graduate school:   Agriculture and Life Sciences, Architecture and Urban Studies, Business, Engineering, Liberal Arts and Human Sciences, Natural Resources and Environment, Science, Veterinary Medicine,  Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, and the graduate school. It ranks 38th among America's Research Universities according to the National Science Foundation.

The 2,600 acre main campus lies within the sylvan setting of  Virginia’s Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, about 38 miles southwest of Roanoke, Virginia. Other facilities include a nearby 1,700 acre research farm, a medical school in Roanoke, graduate and research centers across Virginia, including the Washington, D.C. area and a study-abroad site in southern Switzerland.

As a research university, Virginia Tech recognizes its responsibility to nurture human nature’s proclivity to seek for answers and solutions. With an educational philosophy dubbed “Hands On/Minds On,” students at all levels are challenged to pursue the discovery of new knowledge. We believe there is a linkage between the excitement of the classroom and the excitement of “Eureka.” We recognize the joy of knowledge for knowledge sake, but emphasize the intentional integration of theory and self-learning. Exploration of new ideas takes center stage where research is a hallmark experience for every student.  Defined as an experiential learning activity that synthesizes knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom, research provides a unique opportunity for students to contribute to knowledge creation.

The university values innovation and entrepreneurial activity throughout the enterprise. The faculty community is encouraged to declare intellectual property and the university aggressively seeks licensees to push campus discoveries into the marketplace.  Virginia Tech – Invent the Future.
