Welcome to the Georgia Institute of Technology
Established in 1885, Georgia Tech is a talented and diverse community of learners and scholars located in the dynamic city of Atlanta. Members of the Tech community are united by a commitment to intellectual vigor and excellence, and engaged together in the discovery of knowledge in the classroom, in the research lab, and in community outreach. Our goal is to define and model the technological research university of the twenty-first century.
Long renowned as one of the nation's best engineering schools, Georgia Tech also offers a wide range of outstanding academic programs in architecture, computing, liberal arts, management, and the sciences—all of which are infused with a unique technological perspective that increases their relevance in today's world.
I invite you to check out our wide range of excellent academic programs and extracurricular activities, and learn more about the groundbreaking research under way in dozens of labs across campus. You can also catch a sense of Tech's spirited traditions and the thrill of Yellow Jacket athletic competition in the NCAA's Division I.
