Have you heard of this College?
 
Georgia Institute of Technology, or more commonly known here as Ga Tech.

I've seen quite a few people here that are from the science and engineering fields so I figured I maybe ask you if you had any experience with this school? I've heard mixed reviews about it but I've mostly heard is a hard school but will give back twice as much that is given.

Has anyone heard of Ga Tech, had/have some experience?

Have you heard of LSU, Caltech or Havard?



Ga Tech isn't an obscure university :lol:

Er, yeah. I have a degree in aerospace engineering from GT. And yes, it is a very difficult school, just like probably most engineering schools. If you can handle the work, it can be very rewarding, but make no mistake, you're going to work your butt off. I was salutatorian of my high school, but within the aerospace engineering major, I was probably only an average student.

I didn't go there, but have an engineering background and have heard it's a really engineering school.

I grew up in the northeast and now work in the upper midwest, so I don't personally know any grads.

Yep, it's not MIT, but it still has a pretty stellar reputation among tech schools.

Aren't they the "Rambling Wrecks"?

Should you have to ask...

They have a decent (ish) football team so the school must be relevant. ;)

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. "Ramblin' Wreck" is another nickname based on the fight song and history of the school.

:guffaw: (Well, I'm just happy we beat USC (Calif.) in the most recent bowl game!)

My school didn't have a football team but they still let me practice engineering.

Well, seeing as i've managed to hear about this "little known" school all the way up here in Canadaland...

Yes, I believe I've heard well of their sports program.

This I can vouch for. The eng school part I mean. And for some reason, I went back for a masters.

You do know there are two brutal 8-hour exams after you graduate if you want to get licensed...

What discipline are you interested in? I'm a civil with an envl slant.

^ Well, it's no Uni Bologna but what is? ;)

Georgia Tech is definitely a high-level engineering school - especially regionally.
