Committed to a new generation of engineers

Founded in 1785, the University of Georgia is the birthplace of American public higher education. The College of Engineering is the newest college at UGA and one of the fastest growing colleges of engineering in the nation. 

Learning + Discovery + Innovation

Understanding that 21st century engineers require more than technical knowledge, we equip students with an understanding of the social and economic impact of their work, the ability to communicate their ideas to a wide variety of people, the ability to work effectively in teams, and the skills to provide leadership in solving society’s grand challenges. Our students are immersed in hands-on learning through design-based classroom and field experiences, undergraduate and graduate research, study abroad, co-ops and internships. The UGA College of Engineering offers eight undergraduate and seven graduate degree programs. We also offer a variety of dual degrees and combined bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
