UGA Engineering Graduate Programs


Chartered by the state of Georgia in 1785, the University of Georgia is the birthplace of public higher education in America — launching our nation’s great tradition of world-class education for all. What began as a commitment to inspire the next generation grows stronger today through global research, hands-on experiential learning and extensive outreach. One of America’s “Public Ivies” and a top 10 best value in public higher education, the University of Georgia tackles some of the world’s grand challenges — from combating infectious disease and securing the world’s food supply to advancing economic growth and analyzing the environment.

Located in the Classic City of Athens, approximately an hour northeast of Atlanta, Georgia’s flagship university thrives in a community that promotes the benefits of a culture-rich college town with a strong economic center.

Graduate Research

Students completing a Ph.D. or M.S. engage in leading research that pushes the frontiers in their chosen area while helping to address pressing societal needs. Faculty from our three Schools are advancing research on a broad range of fronts in our interdisciplinary research clusters and institutes.  The faculty member with whom a student works serves as that student’s advisor, mentor and guide through her/his graduate school journey and is a lifetime professional colleague. The first step in pursuit of graduate studies is to connect with our faculty and discuss opportunities and mutual interests for research. Explore the links below and start the conversation:
