Welcome to Planning at Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech's focus on research and cutting-edge technology makes our School stand apart from other Planning programs. Our curricula in urban planning, geographic information science, global development, and urban analytics offer hands-on experience. Trained by passionate faculty, our graduates create sustainable, resilient, and inclusive cities. Our labs and affiliated centers help cities flourish through research-driven solutions.  

Located in Atlanta, Georgia, our School is an important and active part of a vibrant metropolis. For more than seven decades our students have benefitted from unique capstone, internship, and employment opportunities thanks to close connections with international, federal, state, local, and private sector urban planning and development organizations.
