Research at Georgia Tech inspires game-changing ideas and new technologies that help drive economic growth, while improving human life on a global scale.
This is all possible because Georgia Tech’s culture encourages thinking big and fearless pursuit of grand challenges. Another factor that sets Georgia Tech apart from other research universities is the interdisciplinary, highly collaborative environment that fuels the Institute.
Georgia Tech researchers understand that solving complex problems requires combining the input of diverse groups. Through an innovation ecosystem that brings together education, research, government, and industry in unique ways, researchers and students from various units across campus are creating transformative opportunities and strengthening collaborative partnerships, internally and externally, to maximize the impact of their research on society – whether that research is related to a new biomedical health care solution, a manufacturing system that needs maximizing, or a new sustainable energy source.
For researchers at Tech, success is defined through the expansion of fundamental knowledge and the transition of research results from the lab to the real world.
