Founded in 1785, the University of Georgia is the nation’s first state chartered university and the birthplace of American public higher education. The College of Engineering is proud to be a part of UGA’s distinguished heritage as well as a dynamic part of the University’s future.
Engineering + Liberal Arts
The College of Engineering is one of the fastest growing programs at UGA and one of the fastest growing public colleges of engineering in the nation. Since our founding in 2012, enrollment has tripled to nearly 1,700 students. Students and faculty alike are attracted to our setting in a comprehensive, land-grant, research institution that’s consistently ranked among the 20 best public universities in the nation.
Innovation + Discovery
Built around a model that transcends traditional academic boundaries, the College offers eight undergraduate and seven graduate degree programs. Our research is centered in three Innovation and Discovery Clusters that bring together faculty and students from a wide variety of disciplines. Experiential learning – co-ops, internships, study abroad and undergraduate research – means graduates aren’t simply prepared for the workplace, they’re prepared to lead.
Engineers and Bulldogs
Founded in 2012, we're the newest and fastest-growing college at UGA but the discipline of engineering has been taught at the university since the mid-1800's.
The College of Engineering is using an interdisciplinary approach for preparing students to engage in critical issues through careers in leadership and professional practice, and addresses the challenges facing society with collaborative research in technologies and concepts that will transform Georgia, our nation and our world.
