Georgia Institute of Technology, more commonly known as Georgia Tech, is one of the most reputed public research universities in the world. Founded in 1885, GeorgiaTech initially started with core programs like mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering. But in the early 1900s, it started a host of other programs, and now is highly reputed for ALL of its courses as well. Another thing to be known about Georgia Tech is the fact that it has ‘satellite campuses’ in France, Ireland, China (Shanghai) as well as Singapore. Students are often given options of specialized programs wherein they spend one year at the main GT campus and another year at one of the foreign campuses. It ranks #69 according to U.S. News' 'Best Global Universities Ranking' list.
Students will complete 21-credit hours of coursework, and a 9-credit hour project. A thesis option is available. There are eleven specialization areas for this program: Computer Graphics, Computing Systems; High-Performance Computing, Human-Computer Interaction; Interactive Intelligence; Machine Learning; Modeling and Simulations; Scientific Computing; Social Computing; and Visual Analytics.
