Aside from (and I suppose due to) the ever present construction on-campus, there are excellent facilities. There are many computer labs which have excellent systems. Classrooms, dining halls, and dorms vary widely based on when they were designed.

CURRICULUM FOCUS
Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus Engineering Program
UDC Contributor

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.

What's the dating scene like in this city? Will I meet my perfect mate?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com
