About

About

Our approach to design education is unique for a design school – as a Georgia Tech college, we naturally associate technology and research with our work. We use design thinking to develop new technologies, anticipate the future of buildings and environments, and change the way people experience art, everyday objects, and their immediate surroundings.

College of Design degrees focus on the intersection between technology and the ways people engage with the world. Our classes regularly dig into the science and engineering behind what is traditionally considered art. We emphasize human experiences, from products and soundscapes, to living in buildings and cities.

Our design research encompasses today's most pressing human and built environment issues, including accessibility, sustainability, smart cities, and ground-breaking efforts in spatial analysis and music technology.

We are accredited.
