Georgia Tech has a long history of technology-based education. A Computer Science education at Georgia Tech has been available since 1964, with the start of their Information Science program. By 1970, it had become the School of Information and Computer Science (ICS), offering bachelor’s degrees in information science and doctorates in ICS. Fast forward to 2007 and the college created two divisions, the School of Interactive Computing and the School of Computer Science. The latest additions include advanced degrees in Machine Learning, Analytics, Cybersecurity, and others. DATAVERSITY brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Analytics and Machine Learning at Georgia Institute of Technology.”

One of the more interesting offerings is a Ph.D. in Human-Centered Computing, the science of creating and designing concepts and inventions that improve the ways humans use computers. This program brings together studies focused on three areas: Human-Computer Interaction; Cognition, Learning, and Creativity; and Social Computing.

The culture of academically oriented students at Georgia Tech speaks volumes for their recruitment efforts and reputation.
