Consortium Member: Georgia Institute of Technology

The Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the world’s premier research universities. Ranked seventh among U.S. News & World Report’s top public universities, the Institute enrolls 21,000 students within its six colleges. Georgia Tech is the nation’s leading producer of engineers as well as a leading producer of female and minority engineering PhD graduates. Georgia Tech ranks among the nation’s top ten universities (without a medical school) in research expenditures. Georgia Tech is home to the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development, an applied research center created to help society achieve a sustainable, equitable, superior quality of life through effective planning, policy, and design. It is also the lead university for the Georgia Transportation Institute.
