Founded in 1885, Georgia Tech is one of the most rigorous engineering and technically-oriented colleges in the nation. This public school is a member of the University System of Georgia, and is consistently ranked as one of the top research universities in America. While the school began as a technical institute with a goal of re-industrializing the post-Civil War south, the university quickly expanded its reach and now offers both technical and liberal arts degrees.
Put simply, a degree from Georgia Tech is likely to be highly regarded no matter where you hope to work in the country or around the globe. U.S. News and World Report recently ranked Georgia Tech as the #7 public university in the country, and its graduate engineering college was ranked #4 in the U.S. The school also has a diverse student body, and is in the top 10 for the number of engineering degrees awarded to African American, Hispanic, and Asian American students.
