About

History

Founded on Oct. 13, 1885, the Georgia School of Technology opened its doors in October 1888 to 84 students.

The School’s creation signaled the beginning of the transformation of the agrarian South to an industrial economy.

During its first 50 years, Tech grew from a narrowly focused trade school to a regionally recognized technological university.

Education

Georgia Tech provides a technologically focused education to more than 25,000 undergraduate and graduate students in fields ranging from engineering, computing, and sciences, to business, design, and liberal arts.

Research

Important discoveries often take place at the intersection of disciplines. Georgia Tech's research enterprise encourages the kinds of multidisciplinary collaboration that makes these advances possible.

We've broken down the barriers between our schools, colleges and interdisciplinary research organizations to provide federal agencies, companies, and philanthropic organizations the results they need from research investments.
