For many students, funded fellowships provide a great opportunity to expand their knowledge and resume within a specific area of engineering. A visit to the Georgia Tech Fellowship Office is the first step toward finding a fellowship that will add dimension to your degree and to your career aspirations.

AE because...

"What attracted me to Tech after I finished my undergrad work at Princeton was that I could learn how to engineer the product, system, and applications that industry actually needs. I could study with a professor who's built satellites for fun or with another who's an expert on the Black Hawk. There's simply nothing like it."
