Research & Engagement
Our School's midtown Atlanta laboratories give birth to new ideas that can change urban life. Atlanta’s changing landscape is in part a testimony to Georgia Tech’s creativity and insight.
Our research doesn’t just get published in journals. It influences the lives of people living in cities and regions globally.
The Atlanta BeltLine, Atlantic Station, and Chattahoochee Now were all first imagined in a School project, as were urban heat island mitigation in Louisville and the Shunde Green Heart district in Guandong, China.
More than $3 million of funded research is conducted by School members each year, from a $2.5 million NSF project on urban heat islands to a $5,000 Georgia Conservancy project on school siting.
