Georgia Tech-Lorraine (GTL) was established as the Institute's first international campus in 1990 in Metz, France, a city recently named by the New York Times as one of the top 44 places to see in the world. Centrally located in eastern France along the Luxembourg and German borders, GTL is less than 90 minutes by train from Paris. A highly innovative institution offering year-round undergraduate, Masters and PhD programs, GTL is also home to a strong sponsored research program that fosters the flow of new ideas, creates new opportunities, and develops highly valuable qualities in our students, such as global leadership and innovative thinking.
GTL affords students the opportunity to pursue their Georgia Tech degree while being immersed in the rich culture of Europe. At GTL, students from around the world get the opportunity to study in the heart of Europe and take courses taught in English by Georgia Tech faculty. As a faculty-led program, Georgia Tech-Lorraine offers a balance of engineering, computer science, humanities, French language, management, and social science courses from the Georgia Tech course catalog. Courses are specifically designed to fulfill the student's major and International Plan requirements and students may also take advantage of undergraduate research and international internship opportunities. GTL also provides tremendous value. Out-of-state students save, on average, several thousand dollars in tuition when studying at GTL versus studying on the Atlanta campus and in-state students may take advantage of the HOPE scholarship to study at GTL.
Georgia Tech-Lorraine offers an extensive graduate program encompassing a broad range of study in the areas of mechanical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, as well as computer science. Programs leading to the Master's or PhD degree from the Georgia Tech are available. GTL is home to the Unité Mixte Internationale GT-CNRS UMI 2958, a joint research laboratory with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, the largest scientifique research organization in Europe. The UMI has state-of-the-art research facilities and a well-funded research program. Cooperative agreements with local partner institutions enable GTL graduate students to pursue double degrees in engineering and sciences in addition to degrees from Georgia Tech. Upon successful completion of these highly innovative and integrated programs, students are awarded a Master's degree from the Georgia Tech and a Master's degree from a partner institution.
