University of Georgia - College of Engineering

Introduction

Committed to a new generation of engineers

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.

  • 2,200 Undergraduate and graduate students
  • 94% of Graduates found employment within six months of graduating
  • 8 Faculty members have won National Science Foundation CAREER Awards
  • $60K Average starting salary of graduates with a BS degree
