Message From the Executive Vice President for Research

As an engine of innovation in science and technology, Georgia Tech is committed to conducting research that matters — curiosity- and mission-driven research that serves the public good, with the goal of addressing humanity’s greatest challenges.

No institution can do this kind of work alone. Georgia Tech is an integral part of a global network of private and public partners, serving as a trusted partner, an anchor institution, and a collaborative hub connecting researchers across sectors, disciplines, and borders to advance science and technology that improve people’s lives.

With our fiscal year 2022 seeing historic growth of $1.3 billion in new grants and contracts, we are a catalyst for innovation and economic development. Our growth is keeping us on prominent annual lists, like those featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education Almanac, among others. Most notably, we are currently the only institution on those lists without a medical school.

We are, indeed, a critical source of new ideas and solutions, powering leading companies and new startups throughout our state, nation, and around the world, and creating solutions that improve the human condition every day.

Our research enterprise also affords Georgia Tech students unparalleled opportunities to learn, innovate, and discover where their interests lie. They will become the next generation of scientists, engineers, business owners, and policymakers — the leaders who will transform tomorrow.
