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, from research opportunities at one of CoE’s 150-plus interdisciplinary centers to the annual Capstone Design Expo in which teams of senior undergrads display and pitch inventions with real-world applications. 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. This hands-on experience pays off big time when grads go on the job market. The average starting salary for someone with a Georgia Tech BSME is $62,000.
