MORE THAN A CENTURY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
EDUCATION AT GEORGIA TECH
4
A SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY FOR THE SOUTH
  • The Georgia School of Technology opened its doors
    it 1888 with 129 students registered for
    Mechanical Engineering, the only degree-granting
    program until 1896.

5
Students took a full load of academic classes
this is an early math class.
6
Tech students also took four years of drawing
classes and shop.
7
OUR LINK TO THE PAST
  • Designated a Mechanical Engineering Heritage Site
    by the ASME
  • Only school with this honor
  • Awarded for the tremendous economic impact that
    mechanical engineering education at Georgia Tech
    had on Atlanta, Georgia, and the nation.

8
RECENT RANKINGS U.S. NEWS WORLD REPORT
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • 6th best undergraduate program
  • 7th best graduate program
