Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, better known as Virginia Tech, is a public land grant polytechnic university in Blacksburg, Virginia, USA. Although it is a comprehensive university with many departments, the agriculture, engineering, architecture, forestry, and veterinary medicine programs from its historical polytechnic core are still considered to be among its strongest. Virginia Tech is one of the few public universities in the United States which continues to maintain a corps of cadets (a full-time military training component). Virginia Tech is one of the six senior military colleges (five are public, one private) due to the nature and presence of the corp of cadets.
