What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
one of the top engineering schools in the nation. Great CO-OP and Internship program.
Bhavik from St Augustine, FL
It is a school where you will constantly ask yourself why you are here. However, it is also the only school where you could ver see yourself being at.
George P. Burdell from Atlanta, GA
If you are someone who is dedicated, motivated, and passionate about learning, then Georgia Tech is the school for you. Although this school expects hard work and determination in all subject areas, all that you have learned will benefit the next phase of your studies. And once you finish a class, the feeling of achievement and satisfaction is so strong, and you feel so proud of yourself.
Alexandra from Woodstock, GA
Spectacular campus with a great balance of innovative architecture and green spaces. Great opportunities and activities every week for students. Classes are challenging enough to make you want to overcome obstacles, rather than make you want to give up.
Joel
Overall, it's great school. Graduating from here will give you a reputation before you even enter the workplace, but the academic rigor you go through to get that degree is the reason why.
Thomas from Rex, GA
