The Master’s (M.S.P.S.) and Ph.D. degrees in Paper Science and Engineering (PSE) provide an education in the science and engineering involved in the production of paper, tissue, and other products from natural fiber. These multidisciplinary degrees are offered by the College of Engineering and the College of Science, in conjunction with the Institute of Paper Science and Technology at Georgia Tech (IPSTGT).
The Woodruff School includes programs in nuclear and radiological engineering and medical physics. Interdisciplinary programs are strongly encouraged, and the faculty is involved in research programs with the faculty of other schools at Georgia Tech.The research experience of our faculty is brought to the classroom, giving students a sense of the excitement of mechanical engineering and the cutting edge nature of the discipline at Georgia Tech.
Mechanical engineering is an excellent general education for today’s technological world; as such, mechanical engineers are the generalists of the engineering profession. Mechanical engineering also provides a good undergraduate base for students who want to go into other professions, such as business administration, law, or medicine.
