The Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the nation's leading public research universities, and has been an innovation engine since its founding in 1885. Groundbreaking research is underway in research institutes, centers and laboratories spanning the campus, inspiring game-changing ideas and new technologies that will help drive economic growth, while improving human life on a global scale.
The Institute is focused on solving some of the toughest problems facing our state, nation, and world. This focus transforms industries—and lives—while enhancing economic development and creating jobs. This leadership is possible because Georgia Tech’s culture encourages “thinking big” and fearless pursuit of “grand challenges.” We define success through the expansion of fundamental knowledge and the transition of our research results from the lab to the real world.
