Educating Students in a Global Context
European Master's students
Georgia Tech-Lorraine offers a unique double-degree program in CS, ME, and ECE, (see specialties for each area above) partnering with elite European and North African engineering schools. In their final year of studies, these engineering students take part in an international program that takes them from Georgia Tech-Lorraine in Metz France, to the main Georgia Institute of Technology campus in Atlanta, Georgia. Students don a cap and gown and participate in the graduation ceremony in Atlanta at the end of the program. A Master's degree is granted both by Georgia Tech and the home institution. Graduates are highly sought after for their international training and ability to work in cross-cultural environments.
Other International Master's Students
As the European Campus of The Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia Tech-Lorraine appeals to both American students and other students from around the world interested in obtaining a Georgia Tech degree while studying in France. CS, ME, and ECE (see specialties for each area above) Master's degree students can complete their entire degree at the Lorraine campus, adding an international dimension to their degree. Although classes are in English, many students develop French language proficiency. With access to our corporate partners and an education that develops them into tomorrow's global engineering leaders our graduates could be a great addition to your team.
U.S. Bachelor of Science Students
Georgia Tech-Lorraine is Georgia Tech's most popular undergraduate study abroad experience. Over 500 American and International students spend a semester or two at the Lorraine campus as part of their undergraduate studies per year. Students come from all engineering disciplines, and we also offer courses for liberal arts and business students. These students are eager to take part in projects with our partners to maximize their European experience. Ask us about the possibilities.
How to become a corporate partner
- Sponsor an event: Your company can contribute to our alumni and student activities. Our program is flexible so you can choose whatever makes sense to your organization. Past events have included a special guided tour of a research center, a conference on a hot contemporary issue, and a special seminar with tips.
- Apprenticeship tax: The apprenticeship tax is a legal obligation that companies can use to their advantage. By allocating the tax to Georgia Tech Lorraine, companies are supporting a school which invests in the education of global engineers ready to face tomorrow's challenges. Learn more about the apprenticeship tax here.
- Academic & industry experience: Enhance your visibility to our students and alumni by posting internships and job offers. Send John Fritsch an email with a detailed description of your internship/job offer(s) to share directly with our students and alumni. Looking to invest in the engineers of the future? Establish a scholarship or fellowship to attract students with multicultural experience and an eagerness for global experience from one of the leading US technical institutes. This program is very flexible and may include student selection, long internship (6 months at least), and plan a recruitment offer. Visit our Internship Programs page for an overview of current fellowships offered.
