Academic Programs in ECE
The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech offers some of the world’s most comprehensive educational and research programs for undergraduate and graduate students. Led by faculty at the top of their fields, ECE academics are augmented by research centers and labs that provide students with hands-on experience and by international programs that teach students how to succeed in the global high-tech marketplace.
Products and technologies developed by electrical engineers and computer engineers at Georgia Tech and by ECE alumni have made a dramatic impact on everyday lives. A recent CNN program featured the Top 25 innovations of the past 25 years, highlighting technologies that power the Internet, hybrid cars, modern hearing aids, and cell phones, just to name a few. All of these things, developed by electrical and computer engineers, increase efficiency, enable faster communications, provide cleaner energy sources, or help people with disabilities lead fuller lives.
Besides doing challenging and worthwhile work, electrical and computer engineers are among the top 10 most in demand majors by employers, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers Job Outlook 2005 Survey. Graduates of ECE at Georgia Tech enjoy two distinct advantages–they are among the highest paid of all engineering disciplines and the most hotly pursued by industry and top graduate, business, medical, and law schools. A Georgia Tech ECE degree is a mark of distinction recognized and respected around the world.
