Undergraduate Visit ECE

The following information is provided to assist visitors in planning trips to ECE and Georgia Tech and in navigating the campus:

 

Thank you for interest in the School of ECE at Georgia Tech!  If you cannot make one of our scheduled ECE tours then we highly recommend the following alternatives:

  • Attend a Class – Sit in on a live ECE course for the true college experience. Select the “Attend a Class” tab on this page. All of the instructors listed have agreed to allow visitors, but it is helpful to let them know you are coming!
  • Tour the Interdisciplinary Commons (IDC)  - Opened in Fall 2018, the IDC is a state-of-the-art makerspace with technology that allows students to design and prototype virtually anything they can imagine. Contact hive@ece.gatech.edu to arrange a student-led Friday tour.
  • Visit the Robotarium - The Robotarium project provides a remotely accessible swarm robotics research platform that remains freely accessible to all. Opened on August 22, 2017, the 725-square-foot facility houses more than 100 rolling and flying swarm robots that are accessible to anyone. The Friday Open House events include tours of the facility and demonstrations. Feel free to drop by at any time from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. Remaining Open House dates are: Friday, Nov 9, 2018 and Friday, Dec. 11, 2018. Learn more about the Robotarium.

Dr. Elliot Moore, the associate chair for ECE Undergraduate Affairs, and his office staff can provide valuable information to prospective students and their families. If you have specific questions about our program, please contact undergraduate@ece.gatech.edu to see if it is possible to arrange an appointment on the day of your visit. Please bear in mind that from October 29 to December 14 the ECE Academic Office is assisting students with Phase 1 registration so staff availability may be more constrained. As always, we look forward to addressing any questions you may have.

Thank you for your interest in Georgia Tech's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The School will offer regularly scheduled tours during the fall semester on select Fridays from 2 pm to 3:30 pm. Tours last approximately 1.5 hours.
