What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
Overall, Georgia Tech is a fantastic school with millions of opportunities. The classes tend to be difficult, but that should not deter anyone from going to Tech. Although the going will be rough, Tech will only serve to open the doors to new horizons.
David from Broward County, FL
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.
