Take a Look Around the Georgia Tech Campus. 
Then Join the AE School for a Visit.

The AE campus is eminently walkable. Most of the classroom, lab, and office facilities can be found in the Daniel Guggenheim, Montgomery Knight, Engineering Science & Mechanics (ESM) and Weber buildings, all located on Ferst Drive and Cherry Streets. Additional on-campus facilities include the Ben T. Zinn Combustion Lab, and the High-Power Electric Propulsion Lab, both located in the Research Park on North Avenue; the Institute's Observatory, located atop the Howey Physics Building; and the autonomous racetrack facility on Marietta Street. Off-campus facilities at Ft. Benning and in Cobb County allow faculty and students tremendous freedom in testing unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) and new space craft designs.

  • In-person visit of the School of Aerospace Engineering can be scheduled here

  • Live-virtual visit of the School of Aerospace Engineering can be scheduled here.

If you are not able to make any of the sessions for AE visits, watch the AE Virtual Prospective Student Info Session video.
