Student & Graduate Reviews

3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

Georgia Tech has a quality Architecture program with strong connections to the professional community. It also enjoys a setting in Atlanta, a city that is ripe with successes and challenges for contemporary architecture and urban design/planning.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

I've really enjoyed the academic experience at Georgia Tech. I also studied here for my BS in civil engineering and decided to stay for a MS in environmental engineering. The quality of education is excellent, and it is readily recognized in the professional world, too, as I have seen through three internships along the way. The main cons - outside of a very large workload - are probably simply due to the location of the school. In downtown Atlanta, everything is very expensive and student security is often an issue.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016

Georgia Tech is a great school that has high expectations for their students, the only con is that sometimes they do not offer enough resources for those expectations to be met with sanity intact. A few more opportunities for graduate tutoring would be ideal. Most of the tutoring opportunities are for undergraduate students and there isn't as much support for graduate in that academic support.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Aerospace Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgia Tech is a great school. It is challenges the student to do better, and become better engineers. The graduate program is rigorous and demanding. The combination of classwork and research puts high work loads on students. In the end the time and effort pay off.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2011

The quality of Mechanical Engineering program is excellent at GaTech.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

One of the biggest advantages to the BME program at Georgia Tech is the high quality of research faculty and labs available and the diversity and willingness to collaborate. One disadvantage is the teaching, which is fairly low priority to many teachers and to administration which leads to less effective learning.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is great. Teachers are really knowledgeable, the program teaches all the core requirements to be job ready. The network of alumni and other affiliated contacts is really powerful and helps finding internships and jobs. I really feel like I have what I am paying for. The only cons I see would be the lack of entertainment on campus, it is one of the top engineering school and it is very academically driven.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgia Tech is everything I expected and then some. This applies for both the good and bad aspects of the program. As a first year graduate student, my comments are not based off a great amount of experience, but overall the experience has been good. The number one asset of GT's program is the network and connections gained by being a GT graduate. Secondly, the education experience has been stimulating, encourages creativity, and requires the honing of time management skills. All of these lead to a program that prepares a graduate for a future as a medical professional.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

They are extremely career focused which is refreshing. They assist any way they can with your job search and provide classes like career development and business communications to help better prepare you. Excellent quality of teachers, and staff.
