Scope Note: The Georgia Institute of Technology, commonly referred to as Georgia Tech or, within the state of Georgia, as Tech, is a public research university and institute of technology in Atlanta, Georgia. The school was founded in 1885 as the Georgia School of Technology as part of Reconstruction plans to build an industrial economy in the post-Civil War Southern United States. Initially, it offered only a degree in mechanical engineering. By 1901, its curriculum had expanded to include electrical, civil, and chemical engineering. In 1948, the school changed its name to reflect its evolution from a trade school to a larger and more capable technical institute and research university.
