Department of Biological Systems Engineering

BSE Graduate Students Elizabeth Prior and Katherine Wardinski named NSF Graduate Research Fellows

The fellowship program is the country’s oldest in support of doctoral and master’s students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields, as stated by the organization, and its aim is to recognize and empower the next generation of knowledge experts who can contribute in meaningful ways to research, teaching, and innovations in science and engineering.

Nanoscale to Macroscale

Our faculty and students work in a broad range of biological systems, from natural systems, such as watersheds with a focus on water resources, to built systems, such as bioreactors and bioprocessing facilities. We seek to improve animal, human, and environmental health through development and design of healthy food products, vaccines, bioenergy, biomaterials, and water quality management practices. 

The BSE Opportunities website is a convenient tool to be used by students, faculty, alumni, and prospective students to learn about and share professional opportunities. This website was constructed and is maintained by faculty and staff in the BSE Department at Virginia Tech. Several faculty, students, and alumni submit information regularly (weekly during the academic year), and the content is checked periodically.
