Undergraduate Academics

With 11 undergraduate majors, CoE readies students for careers and graduate study across all kinds of engineering.

Degree Programs

CoE's undergraduate programs build a foundation in engineering principles. Nearly a dozen degrees are offered across the College's eight schools, and students are encouraged to collaborate across disciplines and apply their skills to real-world problems. Whether they want to find jobs or get advanced degrees, graduates leave CoE with both the knowledge and practical experience they need.

The Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering boasts one of the oldest and largest aerospace programs in the country. Whether you want to build and fly all types of aircraft or dream of going into space, the School's focus on problem-solving can propel you into a rewarding career with many top aerospace firms and government-research labs.

This interdisciplinary field integrates engineering and life sciences to support the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Biomedical engineers often serve as integrators in multidisciplinary teams of engineers, scientists, and healthcare professionals in the medical device and biotechnology industries, as well as at government regulatory agencies. Georgia Tech and Emory's program challenges students with practical, hands-on problem-solving and design experiences throughout the curriculum.

Chemists discover and create new compounds, but it’s chemical engineers who turn them into products that people need and use. Chemical and biomolecular engineers are developing frontier technologies in drug design and delivery, biotechnology, nanotechnology, alternate energy resources, and environmentally neutral manufacturing. In these fields and many others, chemical engineers provide the intellectual capital that powers today’s global enterprises.

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering prepares people who will invent the technologies of the future and create solutions to challenges we haven’t even imagined yet. Established in 1898, the School is now among the largest civil and environmental engineering programs in the country. Students on the civil track train to tackle projects like roads and bridges, sure, but they also work on technologies for green buildings, strategies that help us recover from disasters, and projects to alleviate poverty.

Electrical and computer engineering are at the core of just about every technology. Harnessing the power of electricity to advance the modern world, electrical engineering involves the design of devices and systems, from nanoscale computer chips to multinational communications systems. Spanning across the fields of electrical engineering and computer science, computer engineering combines the advanced intelligence of computer systems with the fundamental aspects of electrical engineering to deliver intricate and expansive solutions. Georgia Tech ECE is one of the largest and consistently top-ranked programs of its kind in the United States and our graduates are in high demand in a variety of industries.

Industrial engineers design and improve systems that use people, machines, information, materials, and energy to make and deliver products or provide services. They improve system performance by solving problems whose outcomes are influenced by complicated and uncertain interactions. If you are thinking about a career as an industrial engineer, the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) is a natural place to begin your career path.

Materials science and engineering (MSE) focuses on the design, selection, and development of materials. It is a field that deals with “stuff” -- the metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites that surround us. It looks beyond the question of what materials these things are currently made from and imagines what they should be made from.

Mechanical engineering (ME) is the broadest of the engineering disciplines, combining principles from mechanical systems, thermal systems, manufacturing, and design. Thanks to their creativity and multidisciplinary skill set, mechanical engineers work in virtually every industry. They are critical to the transportation industry, working on everything from the development of hybrid and electric cars to autonomous cars and underwater vehicles.

Nuclear & Radiological Engineering at Georgia Tech falls under the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering. NRE majors design nuclear plants; manage the disposal of nuclear waste; use radiation to diagnose and treat diseases such as cancer.

BS: Nuclear and Radiological Engineering
MS: Medical Physics
MS: Nuclear Engineering
PhD: with a Major in Nuclear and Radiological Engineering

  • CoE students can join dozens of on-campus engineering clubs and organizations.
  • CoE encourages students to broaden their interests with an academic minor.
  • Whether you have decided on your major or are undecided, core courses will support the program you choose. Because core courses support all majors and programs, they will help you understand your chosen specialty in the broader context of a well-rounded engineering education.
