Innovations

Today’s innovation often takes place at the intersection of disciplines. Georgia Tech's research enterprise encourages the kinds of transdisciplinary collaboration that make these advances possible. By bridging basic and applied research to commercialization, we’re helping create new research areas and building the foundations for industries of the future.

At Georgia Tech you will see that research and innovation are everywhere. It is part of almost everything we do. Teams of faculty, students, and researchers throughout our six colleges, 11 interdisciplinary research institutes, the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), and hundreds of research labs and centers are pushing the boundaries of science and technology every day.
