About Georgia Tech

Known to most as Georgia Tech, the Georgia Institute of Technology (GT) long been a leader in public postsecondary education. Georgia Tech's life as a university began more than a century ago, and has since expanded to provide a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate academics.

At Georgia Tech, you can choose from more than 100 programs of study. While the school has a tradition of technical academics in fields like engineering and computing, it has recently expanded its offerings in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts. However, the only undergraduate degree offered at GT is the Bachelor of Science, so even students in liberal arts programs should have an interest in the sciences.

College life at Georgia Tech is as vast as the school itself, with plenty of student organizations to join. Of course, athletics are a key component of Georgia Tech college life, and most students can be found at Bobby Dodd Stadium on football Saturdays, cheering on the Yellow Jackets.

In addition to federal financial aid, Georgia Tech offers a variety of institutional scholarships. The financial aid available depends on the program you're enrolled in, so make sure to check Georgia Tech's financial aid website for complete information.

Due to the range of programs available, the admissions process at Georgia Tech varies. Contact the school's admissions office for further details.

Georgia Tech is a very well-known engineering school and provides a very rigorous but valuable degree. The campus is located in the heart of Atlanta and there are always on-campus events going on. Sorority and fraternity life are big and football games are always fun.

Georgia Tech is overall very nice, mainly because of its great community. People are nice and the city is lively. Size of the campus is large but still comfortable. Food, however, is not the best. Campus is pretty though.
