Georgia Tech’s discovery and development of new and improved materials – those that revolutionize consumer electronics, for instance – lead to wide-ranging technological advances.

Supported by both undergraduate and graduate student researchers, more than 180 Georgia Tech faculty members conduct basic and applied research to understand and develop innovative electronic and optical functional materials, high-performance aerospace and automotive materials, sustainable infrastructure materials, nanomaterials, biomaterials, materials for energy storage and harvesting, and a host of other cutting-edge materials that hold great promise for improving daily living conditions – on both a local and global scale.
