About the College of Sciences

Who We Are

The Georgia Tech College of Sciences cultivates curiosity, encourages exploration, and fosters innovation to develop scientific solutions for a better world. Our connected community of scientists and mathematicians collaborates across disciplines and challenges to achieve excellence in science, teaching, and research. Working across six internationally ranked schools with the brightest young minds in our fields, we mentor future leaders to identify and push the frontiers of human knowledge, imagination, and innovation.

Fostering Future Scientists and Mathematicians

We nurture scientifically curious students by offering diverse educational and research experiences. As an internationally recognized, preeminent institution in the sciences and mathematics, we help students build empowering foundations in the sciences and mathematics — educating and preparing the next generation of scientists who will create the technologies of the future.

Excellence in Teaching and Research

Most of the disciplines within our six schools — Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology — are ranked in the top 10%. We organize ourselves in multidisciplinary research neighborhoods to promote broad exchange of ideas. We also offer exciting opportunities for students to engage in research, and train with top professors in chosen fields.


Encouraging Exploration, Excellence, and Innovation

Our internationally recognized senior faculty and an extraordinarily talented group of junior faculty are genuinely concerned about undergraduate and graduate education, and they bring the excitement of new discoveries in the research laboratory to the classroom. The quality of the faculty and the curriculum, combined with new state-of-the-art facilities and a low student to faculty ratio, ensure the excellent educational opportunities available to our students.

A Vibrant and Connected Community

Georgia Tech occupies a beautiful campus in the heart of Atlanta — a vibrant and verdant city with incredible opportunities in technology, science, entrepreneurship and innovation. Atlanta is home to top educational institutions, leading corporations, and a number of government agencies. Georgia Tech and Atlanta also have a unique place in the history of the advancement of civil and human rights — and in its future.

Should I Study Science and Math at Georgia Tech?

We’re looking for curious minds that love to investigate, experiment, ask questions, and work out solutions. We need students who are ready for the challenge of making discoveries that can change how we see the world — and how it works. If you’d like to attend a top-ranked school in a remarkable community, and apply scientific discoveries to real world problems, we’d like to meet you!
