Research at the Georgia Institute of Technology is about finding connections between diverse ideas and disciplines. Those links are where breakthrough discoveries are possible that will enable humanity to continue growing safer, healthier, and wealthier over time. There is no shortage of these ideas at Georgia Tech.
We are a community of more than 9,000 academic faculty, full-time researchers, and staff, serving more than 36,000 of the brightest students in the world. From basic to translational research, we are in pursuit of both technical and policy solutions to the world’s greatest challenges and studying the ethical implications of such research. From the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and 11 interdisciplinary research institutes, to our research centers and the many researchers within the schools and colleges, we are engaging with local, state and federal agencies, industry collaborators, philanthropic organizations, and others to develop and deploy exciting new solutions and bring new products and technologies to the world.
We are a community of curious innovators, scholars, and creators, and the commitment to Georgia Tech’s motto of “Progress and Service” is deeply entrenched among us. These traditions harken back to a rich history rooted in interdisciplinary problem-solving, leadership and service as an engine of economic development, and a commitment to educate the next generation of innovators.
We stand as one of the top international universities in computing, engineering, design, the sciences, liberal studies, and business. As we look forward, we hope to help shape the future of the national and international research landscape and remain committed to research that’s transformative and lasting for the state of the Georgia, the nation, and the world.
