What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
the classes at tech are very difficult- but there's a reason for that. students get snapped up by the big corporations that are moving into Atlanta before graduation. these companies are seeking employees that are prepared and intelligent- and after four or so years you will be. these classes will push you- just make sure to study.
Bhavik from St Augustine, FL
Tech is HARD. Do not come to this school expecting to fly through every class. It my seem at first that things are easier for certain people, but there will always be a class to trip them up. The reason that Tech is so difficult is that they want to prepare for every type of situation. Tech cannot teach how to be an engineer, that comes from work experience. However they can teach you how to think like an engineer. Classes stretch your mind to not think of one or two ways to solve a problem, but 15 or 20 ways. Just know five years is the norm for the average tech grad, not 4. I
George P. Burdell from Atlanta, GA
The academic rigor at Tech honestly depends on personal preference of favorite classes and then the schedule of classes that you take. Everyone learns differently and favors one subject over another, so it is hard to say what class may be more rigorous than another.
Alexandra from Woodstock, GA
Georgia Tech provides a humbling experience academically as even if you were of the top of your high school class, that is the norm here. You will be surrounded by equally intelligent minds, so academic demand from teachers will be reflected by the quality of their students. Therefore, you will have to study. However, don't see this as something negative. You can learn many things from the other great students, and surely they will learn much from you.

There's a reason Georgia Tech has the reputation that it does. Employers know that Tech students can handle nearly anything and that's because of the insanity they went through as students. The work can easily swamp if you're not careful so stay on top of your assignments.
