Salary and Debt by Major at Georgia Institute of Technology

We calculated a salary score for each of Georgia Institute of Technology's programs by comparing program-specific median alumni earnings to median alumni earnings for the same program across all schools that provide this data. This way, students can compare the relative salary strength of a specific major at Georgia Institute of Technology to the same major at other schools. A school's overall score by level is based on the school's by-program performance weighted by student enrollment in each program. Data is sourced from the December 2020 release of the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard and reflects median alumni debt upon graduation and median alumni earnings in the year after graduation for students who received federal financial aid. Debt and salary numbers are shown rounded to the nearest $10.

The Materials Science and Engineering community at Georgia Tech is very supportive and has improved my experience. Coming to Tech, I wanted a university that would allow me to conduct cutting-edge research as an undergraduate student. I wanted a place that would be supportive of hands on learning.

Also, resources are limited for those students who are pre-health.
