Best Engineering colleges in Georgia

Why a degree in engineering?

Let’s face it, you’re smart. You passed science and math classes with flying colors, and you are the “go-to” when it comes to computer help. You probably took apart a lot of things in your childhood just to see how they worked. Now here you are, ready to literally build the future.

How to prepare for an engineering degree

Engineering has a lot of positives. As suspected, student debt won’t be a concern since finding an engineering career with a starting salary less than $55,000 or an average salary less than $85,000 is more difficult than learning the RubixCube pattern. If money isn’t your driving factor, how about the 85% of engineers who are satisfied with their jobs*, despite longer workdays.

It’s the challenges every day that keep engineers and their ticking minds happy. So if you think you can hack it out with the best of them, brush the dust off that TI84 and get ready. It really is rocket science.

Before enrolling in Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering (CoE), take preconceived notions about traditional classroom structure and turn them the opposite way -- literally. As part of the program’s commitment to outside-the-box thinking, many courses employ a “flipped” classroom. Students view lectures online beforehand and use class time for problem-solving and direct interaction with the instructor. Similar examples of dedication to innovation and hands-on training abound. Students can take advantage of research opportunities at one of CoE’s 150-plus interdisciplinary centers and compete in the annual Capstone Design Expo in which teams of senior undergrads display and pitch inventions with real-world applications. Georgia Tech offers more than 50 different engineering degree tracks at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels. A popular undergraduate option is the five-year co-op program, which alternates semesters of on-campus study with full-time paid employment related to the discipline. And while Georgia Tech is a public institution, don’t worry that you’ll feel out-of-place in Atlanta if you’re not a state resident. Accepted engineering students for Fall 2015 came from 49 states and 64 countries. CoE also awards more engineering degrees to women and underrepresented minorities than any other institution in the United States – once again demonstrating that great things can happen when education isn’t limited by boundaries.
