As a Georgia Tech ECE student, you are a vital part of a thriving global Georgia Tech community. With around 1,400 undergraduate and 1,100 graduate students, ECE is one of the largest academic units on campus. Our size and influence mean we offer a variety of opportunities for students to get involved, explore, and make the most out of their time at Tech. The School’s close-knit, friendly culture translates to an automatic support system made up of fellow students, ECE faculty, and staff members.
In the Current Students section you’ll find the ECE-specific services and support you need in one central place, so that you can focus on being one helluva engineer!

The ECE curriculum is enriched by many special programs that allow students to gain valuable experience, perform research with Georgia Tech faculty, and broaden their cultural horizons.
Both electrical engineering and computer engineering majors may participate in the International Program or Cooperative Education Program, two special academic initiatives at Georgia Tech. Students who successfully complete these programs receive special degree designations on their diplomas.
The School also offers a more intensive undergraduate research program that leads to the Research Option in ECE designation on a student's transcript. A primary goal of the ECE Research Option is to recognize undergraduate students who have participated in a concentrated research effort that results in an undergraduate thesis.
Scholarships & Financial Assistance
Georgia Tech is dedicated to making education accessible to students from all backgrounds. To ensure that financial constraints do not hinder a student's ability to learn, the school offers various scholarships and financial assistance programs. These programs include merit-based scholarships, need-based financial aid, and tuition assistance for students facing financial hardships.
The school believes that every student deserves an equal opportunity to pursue their dreams and achieve their goals, and these financial support programs are just one way they are working towards that goal. The school's commitment to providing these resources allows students to focus on their studies without worrying about the financial burden of education.
The Office of Student Financial Planning and Services is responsible for financial aid and scholarships for undergraduate students.
Financial assistance for graduate students consists of Graduate Assistantships, fellowships, loans, and jobs with the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI).
