Overview

Georgia Institute of Technology Logo

Georgia Tech is an innovative intellectual environment with more than 900 full-time instructional faculty and more than 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students in its six colleges: Architecture, Computing, the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, Engineering, Sciences, and Management.

The university is a national and international leader in scientific and technological research and education. Over the past decade, overall research expenditures have nearly doubled, increasing 99 percent to $525 million in 2008, while federal research expenditures increased 150 percent. Georgia Tech now ranks among the top 10 in research expenditures among universities without a medical school. In addition, Georgia Tech has an estimated $2 billion annual impact on the metro Atlanta economy, according to a 2008 study.

A four-year institution, Georgia Tech is consistently the only technological university ranked in U.S. News & World Report’s listing of America’s top ten public universities. In addition, Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering is consistently ranked in the nation’s top five by U.S. News. In terms of producing African American engineering graduates, Diverse: Issues in Higher Education ranks Tech No. 1 at the bachelor’s level for the 2008-09 academic year. These impressive national rankings reflect the academic prestige long associated with the Georgia Tech curriculum.
