Georgia Institute of Technology

The Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the nation's top research universities, distinguished by its commitment to improving the human condition through advanced science and technology. Georgia Tech's campus occupies 330 acres in the heart of the lively, progressive city of Atlanta, where more than 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students receive a focused, technologically based education.The Institute offers many nationally recognized, top-ranked programs. Undergraduate and graduate degrees are offered in the Colleges of Architecture, Engineering, Sciences, Computing, Management, and the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts. Our students learn from world-class teachers and scholars working at the frontiers of science and technology. Georgia Tech researchers are developing new vaccines and cures for diseases; designing sophisticated new prosthetic limbs for land mine victims; studying development and transportation patterns to improve regional air quality; and providing policy leadership to reduce the global threat posed by weapons of mass destruction.

Department: Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering

Georgia Tech, always in the forefront of engineering, has been involved in biotechnology-related research and education since the mid-1980's. In September 1997, after an intense planning and review process that involved faculty from both institutions, Georgia Tech joined with Emory University School of Medicine to establish the Georgia Tech/Emory Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME). This new academic unit is a unique partnership between a public and a private institution.Research in biomedical engineering holds the potential for major breakthroughs in medicine, basic science, and applied technology. Innovations in medical imaging, computer-assisted surgery, medical devices, and more efficient delivery of drugs to disease sites will be research pursuits for BME.
