Georgia Institute of Technology
How many Georgia Tech students does it take to change a light bulb?
About 230 - ten to conceive new light bulb technology, one to sell it to NASA, 175 to build a new research facility with the money, 35 to install the new lighting technology to power the lights for the football game against UGA, and at least a dozen undergraduates to complain about the work load.
What Uni in the USA says...
The MIT of the South, Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the most formidable powerhouses of scientific research available to undergraduates who really want to push themselves. The experience will not be easy and for some not even enjoyable, but it will let you be part of the one of the most cutting edge research institutions in the country.
Georgia Tech also provides a classic, if work-oriented, college education, with opportunities in sports, the arts and campus life. If you want an easy ride then forget it, but if you want top class academic rigour, combined with an intense work hard/play hard attitude, then this is the place for you.
