The risks of a residential model at Virginia Tech today are different than they were in March. It is important to remember that we have vastly more information today about COVID-19 than we did in the spring.
"It is often said that a decade in computer science is a century in other sciences," said Jian, an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science, of the aspects of his field that fascinate him. "New computer hardware technologies constantly emerge."
Virginia Tech was selected based on efforts to build community capacity for integrating engineering in rural middle school science classrooms, following a nationwide selection process. The project is facilitated by Virginia Tech Partnering with Educators and Engineers in Rural Schools, or VT PEERS.
With over 1,200 laboratories, Virginia Tech strives to solve the world’s most complex problems by connecting brilliant minds with powerful technology. But at the end of the day, every researcher is facing the same challenge: copious amounts of laboratory waste.
Seeking ways to improve prediction methods to preempt future global health crises, Virginia Tech researchers are developing a cost-effective and highly deployable approach for monitoring respiratory illness for public health epidemic forecasting.
Virginia Tech Professor of Computer Science and John W. Hancock Professor of Engineering Dimitrios Nikolopoulos has been honored with the Best Paper award, the first to identify with very high probability the critical, error-inducing instruction sequences in programs.
The center will be administratively established as an institute-level center in the Fralin Life Science Institute and will include faculty participants from at least seven colleges and more than 25 departments on campus.
For Walter Lee, an aspiration to "uncover information that will better inform university efforts to support undergraduate engineering students, particularly students of color," led to his pursuit of a five-year project aiming to contribute to a deeper understanding of how marginalized students navigate undergraduate engineering programs.
For Jeffrey Morelli, it all started with a desire to help others, which grew to a passion for health care and creating innovative technology to improve the overall quality of life. Then, when a global pandemic hit, he knew this was his moment to rise to the challenge.
Virginia Tech’s part-time Evening MBA, based in the university’s Northern Virginia Center in metro Washington, D.C., has attracted many Hokies with undergraduate degrees for several reasons, said MBA programs director Dana Hansson.
Williges made significant contributions to research on human-computer interaction, computer-based training procedures, human factors research methodology, technology for computer users with disabilities, human factors engineering in manufacturing, and emerging human-computer interfaces involving visualization and computer-based conferencing.
