Welcome to Research in the College of Design
Georgia Tech’s most active research collaborators are in the College of Design – and we’re proud to have this reputation. We promote a culture of research that actively engages faculty, research scientists, students, and staff.
Our research is grounded in the College’s core academic disciplines of architecture, building construction, city and regional planning, industrial design, and music. It is also highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, cutting across the various disciplines in the College, the Institute, and the wider research and practice community.
The work in our research centers and faculty labs falls under the broad umbrella of improving quality of life, standards of living, and the environment. Our faculty and research scientists’ strengths in blending design and technology (hardware and software) are accompanied by essential strengths in planning, policy, and spatial analysis.
