Georgia Tech’s mission is to develop leaders who advance technology and improve the human condition.

Majors and degrees are offered through the colleges of Design, Computing, Engineering, Sciences, the Scheller College of Business, and the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
Today’s innovations 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, state government, and private organizations the results they expect from research investments.
