Meet the Director

Our undergraduate degree in real estate is an innovative program that blends academic learning with professional practice. This is accomplished by the academic program being offered and supported by Virginia Tech faculty from multiple disciplines and industry professionals. The Blackwood Department of Real Estate prepares future leaders in the broadly defined real estate profession, and educates students about real estate from initial project conceptualization through construction to management or sale.

We are on the frontier of education today. Students are provided with an excellent academic foundation for their education, but they do more than sit in a classroom and listen to faculty lectures. The core real estate courses are experiential and provide opportunities for students to interact with successful real estate professionals. Students, under the guidance and mentorship of faculty and industry professionals, learn to work in a team environment to solve complex challenges facing real estate development projects.

I invite you to explore our website and contact us to take part in our exciting venture!
