Educating Tomorrow's Global Technology Leaders Through Innovative Undergraduate and Graduate Programs


Students received the following message from the GTL Administration regarding a security alert for Brussels.
"Dear students, colleagues and friends of GTL,
Please be aware of the following security alert for the Brussels area.
Students, please be aware that there is an alert for specific, credible terrorism threats in Brussels. Authorities have warned of planned attacks similar to those in Paris on the 13th.
1) Authorities have closed all train and metro travel until Sunday. Please make alternative plans if you were planning on passing through Brussels this weekend.
2) Authorities strongly recommended avoiding crowds.
3) If you are in the Brussels area, keep safe and cooperate fully with the authorities.
Please keep yourself informed and safe."



“The Georgia Tech-Lorraine administration has worked with the Georgia Tech Police Department, Emergency Preparedness, the U.S. Consulate, the Dean of Students, Legal, and other units on campus to coordinate as efficiently and quickly as possible our response to the crisis in Paris. This includes communications with students, parents, authorities, and the media. Our paramount priority is the safety of our students. We are relieved that all of our students are safe. At this time, we have determined that the situation does not warrant canceling the rest of the current semester, or next semester’s program. We are of course monitoring closely the course of events and constantly assessing the situation.”
