Georgia Tech College of Design

Formerly known as the College of Architecture


Student Life

Industrial Design undergraduates brainstorm and sketch ideas at a table.


We know you expect to get challenged academically by Georgia Tech, but you might be surprised by the collaborative and innovative culture we foster at the College of Design.

Our students are altruistically motivated and use their chosen degrees to help other people. They adapt technology and use design know-how to: create better buildings for people to live in; produce products that make lives better; plan neighborhoods and cities that are healthy and fair; and build unique experiences that help people learn, find inspiration, or get empowered.

Outside of our classes, Georgia Tech students have access to more than 450 student organizations, including 50 Greek organizations, distinguished athletics groups, drama, and music ensembles. Despite spend hours in largely studio-based programs, our students are active members and leaders in clubs all across camps.

The students in the College of Design also have access to several industry-related and professional organizations and take advantage of School-run lectures, exhibitions, networking events, and competitions throughout the year.
