Georgia Institute of Technology
Georgia, the Georgia Institute of Technology is a leading research university committed to improving the human condition through advanced science and technology. Founded on Oct. 13, 1885, the Georgia School of Technology opened its doors in October 1888 to 84 students. The School’s creation signalled 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. Throughout its long history, Georgia Tech has always focused its efforts on preparing students to use their innovative skills and strong work ethic to solve real-world problems and improve the lives of people around the globe. From the world-famous “Ramblin’ Wreck” fight song to the fun and festivities of RATS Week, the Tech campus is steeped in time-honoured traditions that students embrace from generation to generation. In 1948, the School’s name was changed to the Georgia Institute of Technology to reflect a growing focus on advanced technological and scientific research. With approximately 9% of their undergraduate students from abroad, Georgia Tech traditionally receives freshman applications from over 100 foreign countries each year. In their admission process, they closely review your specific academic background and particular educational system in order to make the best possible admission decisions.
As a leading technological university, Georgia Tech has more than 100 centres focused on interdisciplinary research that consistently contribute vital research and innovation to American government, industry, and business. There is no doubt that Georgia Tech stands out as a distinctively different kind of university, one that is eagerly encouraging and developing the revolutionary technologies of the 21st century. Equipped with the extremely rich resources of an outstanding student body and faculty, strong partnerships with business, industry, and government, and support from alumni and friends, Georgia Tech is designing a future of global pre-eminence, leadership, and service. Georgia Tech’s main campus spans 400 wooded acres in the heart of Atlanta. The campus is a comfortable, yet stimulating living and learning environment, with virtually every amenity close at hand.
