Unit Operations Lab

Unit Operations Lab, nicknamed "the UO Lab," is the hallmark course of Chemical Engineering at Virginia Tech. This immersive laboratory experience challenges students to apply everything they've learned in classes and academic labs to real-world problems.

Students working in lab

UO Lab is not only offered on the Blacksburg campus, it also provides students with an opportunity to study outside the U.S. Each year, the department partners with Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Ruhr University of Bochum (RUB) in Germany to offer our UO Lab curriculum.
