Research at Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech researchers have been part of the latest gravitational wave observations, which now include 10 black hole collisions and a merger of two binary neutron stars. The observations were made using the NSF-supported Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) and the European-based Virgo gravitational wave detector.

Research at Georgia Tech

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.

Call for Applications: Senior Vice President and Director, Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI)

The Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications and nominations for the position of senior vice president and director of the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). GTRI is the nonprofit, applied research division of Georgia Tech. Founded in 1934 as the Engineering Experiment Station, GTRI employs more than 2,000 employees supporting eight laboratories in over 20 locations around the country, and performs more than $350 million of problem-solving research annually for government and industry.

Taking a Closer Look at the Partial Federal Government Shutdown

As the partial federal government shutdown continues, Georgia Tech is taking a closer look at potential impacts and reviewing plans for minimizing possible effects on the campus. One area of good news is that the federal agencies affected by the funding interruption continue to accept new proposals in accordance with established deadlines, and no “stop work” orders impacting Georgia Tech’s performance of research have been reported.
