Welcome to Georgia Tech

The Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering

Each year, more than 1,200 students from around the world come to Atlanta to study aerospace engineering at the Daniel Guggenheim School at Georgia Tech, one of the oldest and largest educational programs of its kind. Though selective in our enrollment, the School is not narrow in its approach to the study of this ever-expanding discipline. With more than 40 tenure-track faculty, and countless cross-disciplinary research collaborations, the School provides the sort of breadth and depth that consistently rank it in the top five aerospace educators in the nation. The School's undergraduate program is ranked #2 and its graduate programs #4 in the nation, according to the latest US News & World Report.

Research @AE

Research is at the center of everything we do at the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering. Whether in the classroom or the lab, our faculty and students learn the theories, simulations, equations, and applications of aerospace engineering by relentlessly questioning them. Of course all of our graduate students are involved in research, but did you know that more than 30 percent of eligible undergraduates are, too?
