Talk to the academic advisor in the area you'd like to study to find out which faculty might be most helpful for your particular interest.

How can I find out more about studying abroad?

Tech has some wonderful study abroad programs as well as arrangements with many foreign institutions for semesters abroad. The Office of International Education can tell you more about the programs, including information on which institutions have programs like your major. You can then meet with your academic advisor to find out more about the courses abroad and what works best for you.

How can I get involved in research?

Getting involved in research is one of the advantages of attending Georgia Tech. While your classes are teaching you the cutting edge in knowledge, doing research is creating that new knowledge base. One way to get involved is to look up faculty web pages and see what sounds most interesting to you. Then contact that faculty member to discuss possibly doing research with them. More information can be found on the Undergraduate Research website.
