School Profile and National Rankings

ECE Rankings

The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the Georgia Institute of Technology is the largest producer of electrical engineers and computer engineers in the United States. Over 2,800 students are enrolled in the School’s graduate and undergraduate programs, and in the last academic year, 794 degrees were awarded. All ECE undergraduate and graduate programs are in the top seven of the most recent college rankings by U.S. News & World Report.

In addition to the main campus in Atlanta, Georgia, ECE also has permanent operations at Georgia Tech-Lorraine in France and Georgia Tech-Shenzhen in China. Graduate students who spend at least one semester each at three Georgia Tech locations (Atlanta, Lorraine, and Shenzhen on three continents—North America, Europe, and Asia) can earn the Georgia Tech Global Engineering Immersion Program (GEIP) Certificate when they receive the Georgia Tech M.S. degree.
