Georgia Tech’s undergraduate program in architecture offers a unique educational experience grounded in design, technology, and science. The rigorous curriculum gives students an educational profile that distinguishes them by both their knowledge and know-how. Georgia Tech students learn how to think critically about technology and how to apply new tools to architecture and the challenges of building a better world.
The Bachelor of Science in Architecture program at Georgia Tech is a four-year, pre-professional degree program that immerses students in the world of design and introduces them to the field, to material culture, and to creative approaches to problem finding and problem solving. It prepares them for subsequent graduate-level study leading to professional licensure as a practicing architect and to a variety of career paths and entrepreneurial opportunities in fields dedicated to making innovations in design, planning, construction, and business.
The curriculum includes general requirements in mathematics, sciences, computation, humanities, and social sciences that are at the core of a Georgia Tech education. The architecture curriculum includes required coursework in the areas of architectural history, theory, building systems, media & modeling, and design. A substantial portion of electives allows the pursuit of a wide array of minors in other fields or concentrations in particular areas of specialization in architecture.
Students are exposed to a range of cutting-edge and emerging topics of both theoretical concern and technical application in the School’s incubator workshops. Flexibility in the last two years of the design studio sequence allows coordinated interdisciplinary collaboration with students from other schools as well as opportunities for international study in organized programs in Europe and Asia.
