Georgia Tech is a public research university that is home to just over 21,000 students. Famous for its cutting-edge computing and engineering programs, it was the first school in the country to establish a College of Computing. The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, which serves over 2,600 students, graduates more electrical and computer engineers than any other school in the nation.
Georgia Tech offers a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Computer Engineering and a Master of Science (MS), which can be designated as an MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering (MSECE) or just as an MS. Master's degree students who spend a semester abroad can earn the Georgia Tech Global Engineering Immersion Program Certificate. The ECE school also offers minors and concentrations, a combined BS/MS program, and a Ph.D. program in computer engineering.
