About the Georgia Tech
Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the leading technology research centers in the United States. The institute was founded on October 13, 1885 in Atlanta, capital of Georgia, with the name of Georgia School of Technology.
Founded as the Georgia School of Technology, Georgia Tech assumed its present name in 1948 to reflect a growing focus on advanced technological and scientific research. It is known as one of the three major prestigious institutes of technology in the United States along with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the northeast and the California Institute of Technology in the west.
Unlike the similarly named institutions, the Georgia Institute of Technology is a public institution. Initially, the only degree offered was mechanical engineering. In 1901, the educational offer included electrical, civil and chemical engineering.
In 1948, the university changed its name to Georgia Institute of Technology. From 1951, women also began to be admitted, and from 1961, African-American students too. Today Georgia Tech is divided into six colleges and approximately 31 departments, with an emphasis on science and engineering.
The university is recognized for excellence in programs in engineering, science, business administration and humanities. The main campus is located in Atlanta’s central Midtown district. In 1996 the campus was home to the athletic village during the Summer Olympic Games.
