Study Abroad at GT

TECHsplore programs provide short-term study opportunities for international students visiting Georgia Tech. Our programs are for non-degree seeking students and provide cultural and contextual information about Georgia Tech and the United States to support students' academic and social engagement while in Atlanta. TECHsplore programs are the only pathway for international, non-degree-seeking students to study at Georgia Tech without an exchange agreement.
