Institutes, Centers, and Laboratory Facilities

Our researchers not only contribute to and partner with many of Virginia Tech's research institutes and centers, but they also have access to some of the most state-of-the-art facilities in the world.

Virginia Tech Research Institutes

The university's eight research institutes enhance our ability to address large-scale research opportunities by crossing traditional disciplinary and college lines. They also provide clients access to world-class expertise across many disciplines and to the scientific and technical capability of specially equipped, advanced laboratories.

College of Engineering faculty and student-researchers are key players in these endeavors and are frequent contributors to institute initiatives. Although we regularly partner with all eight institutes, the following tend to be our most frequent collaborators:

Centers and Laboratory Facilities

      • College of Engineering Centers

        The College's research centers combine faculty from a variety of disciplines with an array of specialized equipment and resources.

      • Laboratory Facilities

        Unique labs that are equipped with the latest technology and equipment provide our engineers with the tools they need to move solutions forward.
