I am taking Master of Science in Computer Science program in Georgia Institute of Technology. This is a good university and it provides a chance which I can learn advanced computer science skill. It also provides a chance which I can take online class at home. It can make me save more money.
I have enjoyed my time as a student on campus so far. I especially appreciate the walkable campus, and the easy access to academic resources, such as tutors. Something I would like to see changed, but I understand is something that can't really be fixed easily is more study space.
I attended Georgia Tech 2018-2022 for an undergrad degree in Architecture and I would say my experience was a tiny bit different from an engineering student, which was the majority. The studio courses we needed to take were long and difficult but as a result, I feel like I got a well-rounded education and I quickly found a job with the skills I learned. The overall education was good balance of art and technical, which is what I was looking for when choosing this school for Arch. There were times where it felt like everyone was trying to compete with each other or when people took things way too serious. However, most of the people I met were these amazing individuals who are passionate about what they do.
I love Georgia Institute of Technology for its rigorous academic programs, cutting-edge research opportunities, and vibrant campus community. The institution's reputation for excellence in STEM fields and strong industry connections are also notable aspects of the overall experience at Georgia Tech. Also the campus is stunning.
While Georgia Tech is a well-renowned research and engineering school, I personally feel like that is all it is good for. Most of the other aspects of this school fall short. I cannot really say this about my major classes, as an Industrial Design major, due to how different ID is from all of the other majors on this campus, but I heard that other major-specific classes do not have the best instruction. The core classes also feel harder than they really should be. There are hard classes, and then there are Georgia tech hard classes. They are not the same. The dorms and food on this campus are also lacking. I am very privileged to be living in one of the best freshman dorms on this campus (Glenn), and my ac unit's heating setting does not work. My friends who live in other dorms often times describe their dorms as the "slums of GT". The food is also kind of worse than the school lunch I got in high school. The one thing I really like about this school, however, are the people.
I have attended this university for a little bit over a year. As most may expect, the classes are rigorous and many peers here are high achievers and geniuses in their field.
Academics - simply the best. Housing - decent, but not great. Food - leaves a lot to be desired. Overall, definitely a great experience because the opportunities that you have here as a student are truly unparalleled and the school really gives you a competitive advantage in the real world / in your future career
Very highly ranked nationally in undergraduate mechanical engineering and other engineering programs. Has a lot of extra curricular and research opportunities. Classes are effective and have good labs.
It’s been eye opening, meeting a lot of new people and learning new skills. I’ve head my struggles and fun moment but overall I have a good experience.
Georgia Tech is very rigorous but has some great professors and unique opportunities. There are a lot of clubs and research opportunities.
I take it my planning ,it is ok it's great ,why because of,it is online classes , but,this is nice so first of all lessoning reading and writing
Great School in a fantastic city! The campus is so peaceful that you’d never know you’d in the heart of a major city. If you want to be an engineer there is no better school.
The curriculum is very difficult and research oriented. It challenges you to think on your own and figure things out by yourself. The is a big competitive nature among the students.
Georgia Tech is an amazing university that provides a first class education that you'll always be proud of. I completed an M Arch there. All of the programs are first class and if you can get admitted, it's worth it. They also have options like co-ops which make it a very affordable university.
Georgia Tech has been awesome to me so far! I love the diversity of thought and the rigor of the courses.
I transferred to Georgia Tech in the spring of 2023. Whenever I arrived, I was welcomed into the community with open arms and immediately hit the ground running. While the classes have been difficult, the relationships formed here have been more than worth it. The one thing that Georgia Tech could work on would be their housing prices, as they are very high and almost force you to move off campus. Outside of this, the school provides a safe learning environment that pushes you to achieve excellence, and I am thankful I came here.
I have had a pretty good experience at Georgia Tech. I have enjoyed the community of people and how everyone seems willing to help in some aspects. I have also enjoyed the amount of clubs that you can be involved in on campus.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Georgia Tech. The campus is beautiful, there are plenty of community engagements, and the environment is friendly. Of course, let this not distract from the fact that Georgia Tech is a school that requires a lot of discipline. The library will be your deep friend as you get assignments complete. All in all, however, this school is far from impossible; there were some days I had enough time to play basketball for four hours after class! If you manage your time, stay focused, and find a community, you'll have an absolute blast at Georgia Tech.
Georgia Tech, as most of you know, is a very good school. The 3 major complaints I have are: 1) Tech does not give any financial aid, 2) the dorms are pretty bad and definitely over priced for what you are getting, 3) the dining hall food is atrocious. Because Tech is a public school, the lack of need and merit based financial aid is expected, but I was not expecting 0. And the other 2 go hand in hand. The unacademic life at Tech, outside of sports, does not seem like it is a priority to the administration at Tech, so even though they say they are making changes to improve the state of things, nothing is really visible
Georgia Tech gave me solid foundation on critical thinking, long life learning aptitude and enabled me to partake in extracurricular activities such as the newspaper, service organizations and social clubs. The engineering school put emphasis on research and proper writing and communication techniques. Located in a global city with low cost of leaving GT has an alumni organization which continuously provides networking opportunities and training.
