New Frontiers in Space
Through development of next gen research experiments and their space-flight deployment, faculty and students are bringing to light the effects of space-weather events and other phenomenon on Earth’s atmosphere. Pushing boundaries at the intersection of physical and data sciences, analytics, cybersecurity, remote sensing and spacecraft technologies, Virginia Tech has built a best-in-class, comprehensive suite of space-related programs through Space@VT.
Hands-on, minds-on learning brings together faculty and students across colleges and departments including aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, computer science, and physics to create new models of partnership and discoveries, tools, and technologies for the digital age.
