Georgia Tech Savannah
Initiated in 1998 with the offering of undergraduate electrical engineering degrees through the Georgia Tech Regional Engineering Program (GTREP), Georgia Tech Savannah (GTS) was created to unite education, industry, and technology in southeast Georgia. Since its inception, the Savannah campus has grown considerably, and now students may earn Georgia Tech bachelor’s degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, civil engineering, and mechanical engineering. Students are offered many opportunities for hands-on learning while they complete their degree programs, ranging from undergraduate research projects and internships to Georgia Tech’s world-renowned cooperative program.
Georgia Tech Savannah also offers graduate programs of advanced study and research leading to master’s and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering, civil and environmental engineering, and mechanical engineering. Under the advisement of internationally-prominent faculty, graduate students are involved in advanced-level coursework and independent research in areas such as signal processing, high performance computing for radar and sonar, communications theory, intelligent and collaborative systems, wireless sensor networks, coastal monitoring, beach nourishment, blast response of structures, imaging of geomaterials under earthquake conditions, alternative energy, and maritime logistics.
Georgia Tech Savannah's strategic location along the coast allows the campus to turn local assets into global solutions, developing the world’s best and brightest engineers within a “living laboratory” that balances an active seaport, military bases, manufacturing plants, and technology test-beds with art, culture, history, and areas of pristine natural beauty.

In June 2011, it was announced that the mission of Georgia Tech-Savannah will be changing. The current degree programs will be phased out and the emphasis will shift to co-curricular, executive, non-credit, and professional education, as well as regional applied research opportunities. For more information about this transition, visit The Path Forward section on the Georgia Tech-Savannah home page.
