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. 

BSE Opportunities Website

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.
