Diversity

At the College of Engineering, our people make us who we are, and we welcome students and faculty from all different cultures, creeds and genders with a policy of absolute inclusion. Ours is the most diverse college of engineering in the U.S., known for graduating the most women and underrepresented minority engineers. 

Our Commitment

The College is committed to the fight against racism, discrimination, racial bias, and racial injustice. Our shared vision is one of social justice, opportunity, community and equity. We believe that the diversity and contributions from all of our members are essential and make us who we are. We believe that our impact must reach beyond the classroom, research labs, our campus, and the technology we create, but must also improve the human condition where injustice lives. We will continue to work to understand, value, and celebrate all people and create an inclusive educational and work environment that welcomes all.

The Center for Engineering Education and Diversity (CEED)

The Center for Engineering Education and Diversity (CEED) is a key component of the effort to produce a diverse mix of engineers. CEED collaborates with administration, student organizations, national corporations, the K-12 community, and other groups in order to support minorities and create a diversified workforce.

Women in Engineering (WIE)

The Georgia Tech Women in Engineering (WIE) program is dedicated to recruiting top female students into engineering majors and, once enrolled, to ensure the highest level of retention by fostering an environment that encourages curiosity, creativity and intellectual and personal growth. WIE strives to redefine the engineering profession as a positive societal force with the potential to improve the quality of life through the creation of world changing technologies. WIE challenges and inspires women to achieve their fullest potential as engineers and as leaders, and celebrates their accomplishments and successes.
