Research at Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech researchers are leading a $6.25 million Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative that will use collective emergent behavior to achieve task-oriented objectives. The researchers are trying to predict and design emergent behavior within computation by using basic algorithms on simple machines to perform complex tasks.

Advancing at the Intersection

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.




Georgia Tech consistently ranks among the top U.S. universities in the volume of research conducted, and and in 2017, we conducted $824 million in research. But addressing critical research challenges isn’t enough. We’re also moving these solutions out into the world through commercialization and technology transfer, creating an innovation ecosystem to benefit stakeholders ranging from students to startup companies.
