Academy of Integrated Science
Minors & Other Programs
Welcome to the Academy of Integrated Science,
Virginia Tech's home for cross-disciplinary scientific education!
Our three new Bachelor's degree programs, Computational Modeling and Data Analytics (CMDA), Nanoscience, and Systems Biology, bring together multiple areas of expertise to explore powerful new approaches to current complex scientific problems. The innovative Integrated Science Curriculum (ISC) offers a two-year deeply interdisciplinary educational experience centered on student teams working in labs and lectures. The Science, Technology, and the Law minor focuses on intellectual property issues, thus addressing a need for scientists and engineers who are, or will be, involved in projects seeking marketable outcomes.
