Interdisciplinary Research
Georgia Tech is pioneering new fields of research that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries in order to solve the great scientific challenges that face us in this century. The nearly completed four-building BEM complex is the physical embodiment of our vision to provide a modern and relevant environment for our faculty and students. Many new research projects are underway at these facilities in which College of Sciences personnel from the schools of Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, and Earth & Atmospheric Sciences are joining forces with researchers from Civil & Environmental Engineering, Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, Industrial & Systems Engineering, the College of Computing, and even the School of International Affairs (and others), to tackle daunting environmental and natural resource issues like climate change, biodiversity, conservation, and public health. Below is a sampling of current projects:

Elsewhere on campus, the School of Psychology teams with the College of Computing, the School of Literature, Communication & Culture (and others) , on interdisciplinary projects such as the GVU Center and the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) Program; and the School of Applied Physiology collaborates with the schools of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering on the MSPO program. There are numerous others and the list is growing!

 

Offices & Resources
Faculty and student research is supported by numerous offices and programs on campus and off, including the Georgia Tech Office of Research and Graduate Studies, the Office of Research Compliance, the Georgia Tech VentureLab, The Office of Sponsored Programs, the Georgia Tech Research Corporation, Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), and the Georgia Research Alliance.
