over 23,450 Virginia Tech's ETDs


Virginia Tech's ETDs have migrated to VTech Works! Here you will find about 23,000 VT ETDs that you may browse by author, department, title, advisor, and more. You may also search the ETDs.

Virginia Tech has been a worldwide leader in ETD initiatives for more than 20 years. On January 1, 1997 VT was the first university to require ETDs. Our mission is to preserve and provide access to the research and scholarship of Virginia Tech's graduate students. Many, but not all, of our traditionally bound theses and dissertations have been scanned and are also availble in VTech Works.

ETDs give students the opportunity to prepare, submit, review, and publish electronic works such as book chapters, journal articles, and conference presentations. We support supplementary files in media formats such as csv (data), audio, video, 3-D images, and others.

VT's ETD policies, procedures, and software are openly available from this web site. The guidelines that apply to Virginia Tech's graduate students as ETD authors can be found at etd.vt.edu and the Graduate School.
