Georgia Institute of Technology Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (15)
Georgia Institute of Technology (or Georgia Tech) is an exceptional school for Engineering, particularly in Chemical or Aerospace engineering. Georgia Tech has a rigorous engineering curriculum. Most of the professors are subpar in terms of their teaching abilities, but that is primarily because their true focus is on extremely important research. That does not mean your education is poor - to the contrary, this method forces the student to learn material on his/her own and show conviction to hard work and higher learning which are the qualities most critical to an employer. Speaking of employers, Georgia Tech has a high post graduate employment rate due to the rigor and reputation of the school as well as a large career fair held each Fall. Overall, you will work extremely hard throughout the curriculum, but your degree has high value and thus demands high salary/benefits from top company employers. I would highly recommend Georgia Tech due to the skills and employability received upon graduation.
Industrial Engineering at Georgia Tech is ranked number 1 in the world. The professors, student body, and curriculum not only provided the necessary skills that all basic professionals desire, but also equipped me with problem solving skills that are transferrable to all businesses. Thanks to the schools background and reputation, landing internships as a student was very easy. After graduation, having a Georgia Tech education and internship experience put me at an advantage while job searching. I realized all the benefits that came with the school so I came back to pursue my MBA to broaden my knowledge and network of professionals to advance my career.
Georgia Tech has an amazing civil engineering program. The classes are difficult, but there are lots of resources on campus to help you like tutors, TA's, the passion of other students, and weekly professor office hours. There are five concentrations you can participate in including structures, geotech, transportation, and environmental engineering.
It's a fun campus with pretty good programs in human computer interaction, digital media, and related fields.
Going to Georgia Tech was the hardest and best thing I have done. Just the knowledge of where I got my degree has opened doors, and I had the best experiences of my life there. You really can do anything that you want at Tech, from studying abroad to sports to clubs.
Great school, very focused, very challenging.
Tech is academically rigorous but rewarding and prepares you well for the real world, both with its rigorousness and its location in a bustling major city rather than an insular college town. It is also fun and lacks pretense. Students are free to be themselves.
It's an amazing school located in a well-developed city center. The professors are knowledgeable, and, for the money, there is absolutely no better education to be had. The courses are incredibly difficult, as they should be for the planners and builders of the world.
Georgia Tech was a great school for learning and social life. Classes are difficult and meaningful, teaching good skills for an entry-level Software Engineering position.
I am very proud to be a Georgia Tech grad. The 7 years of my life to get both my B.S. and M.S. was hard, but rewarding.
