Welcome to the Center of Campus

We’ve learned that when you put a college filled with creative intellectuals in a culture of technology and innovation, you end up with the kind of design that can change the planet and the lives of everyone on it.

Most of our students had a hard time deciding between majoring in Engineering, Computing, or one of our design-centered majors. That’s not surprising because our academic programs are driven by evolving technology, enterprise and social change.

We engage in nutty, brainy problems like everyone else at Georgia Tech but we do it in a very specific way: we come up with solutions to complex issues through the design process, whether that’s Architecture, Industrial Design, or Music Technology. From the BeltLine, to astronaut suits, to robotic drumming arms, you can look to Georgia Tech to see the future of environments and objects.
