Welcome to the Virginia Tech College of Science.

Our students, faculty, and staff discover, understand, and apply fundamental scientific principles to pursue questions beyond the boundaries of traditional disciplines and established knowledge to promote healthy people, strong communities, and a sustainable planet.

Through hands-on learning in classrooms and labs, and our undergraduate research programs, our students work alongside renowned faculty and staff to solve complex issues locally, regionally, and globally. We teach the disciplines of biological sciences, chemistry, economics, geosciences, mathematics, physics, psychology, and statistics, as well as innovative areas such as integrated science, computational modeling and data analytics, and nanoscience in our Academy of Integrated Science. In our new School of Neuroscience, we study not only disorders of the brain, but also the mind itself, including decision-making, behavior, and creativity. We provide the scientific infrastructure of Virginia Tech.   

We are dedicated to excellence in all we do, the challenges and joys of discovery, and diversity of ideas and people. I hope you join us in this spirit of our Virginia Tech motto of Ut Prosim, That I May Serve, and the spirit of a land-grant institution that pervades all we do.

- Sally C. Morton, Dean of the College of Science at Virginia Tech
