About the School

Transforming places and spaces

The faculty, staff and students of the School of Building Construction spend every day thinking about the development, construction and management of the built environment. 

Our mission is to educate future innovators and leaders in construction and facility management, and to conduct transformative research in these areas. We'll do it by leveraging our global influence as research and education leaders in the building construction field.

We also take advantage of our long-standing relationships with industry, our alumni and associations devoted to industry growth and education. Visiting lecturers, access to internships and interdisciplinary research provides our students with a professionally-oriented curriculum that includes real-world experience. Even our location plays into our program: Georgia Tech is located in Midtown, Atlanta – the heart of the city’s global business community!
