Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech/VT)

Virginia Tech is a land-grant university located in Blacksburg, Virginia (USA) with campuses and facilities around the globe. We are home to nine colleges and graduate schools and host 110 bachelor’s degree programs, 170 master’s and doctoral degree programs and a corporate research center. We implement our motto, “Ut Prosim,” (That I May Serve) in all of our initiatives.By working to improve local communities and by addressing global problems, Virginia Tech’s contributions are felt by people across the world.   
 
Our regional campuses are located throughout the commonwealth of Virginia, especially in the National Capital region, where we address critical issues facing the Commonwealth of Virginia, the nation, and the world. Virginia Tech also provides faculty and students to gain a global perspective on the world by encouraging international collaboration and study abroad. The Steger Center for International Scholarship in Riva San Vitale, Switzerland has been the university’s international base since the 1990s. Year-round, it provides students the opportunity to experience the world while still feeling at home at Virginia Tech’s campus and learning in a university setting.
 

As a land-grant university, we are the “university of and for the people” and are committed to outreach and innovation to improve the ways people work and live through hands-on, transdisciplinary approaches. Virginia Tech is in the top five percent of universities in the nation for research expenditures, so research is at the core of what we do. It allows our faculty to address questions that can improve the livelihoods of people around the world. With a strong team of researchers, undergraduate and graduate students are able to pursue research opportunities alongside professors to get real, hands-on problem-solving experience right here at home. As we continue to grow and expand our reach, we will always be committed to “an inclusive community of knowledge, discovery, and creativity dedicated to improving the quality of life and the human condition within the Commonwealth of Virginia and throughout the world.”
