Take a Look Around the Georgia Tech Campus.

Then Join the AE School for a Visit.

NOTE: The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted us to temporarily halt on-campus tours. Campus visits will be resume when the health situation improves. In the meantime, we invite prospective students to learn more about the demands and benefits of a Georgia Tech aerospace engineering degree by viewing this virtual AE Info Session.

The AE campus is eminently walkable. Most of the classroom, lab, and office facilities can be found in the Daniel Guggenheim, Montgomery Knight, Engineering Science & Mechanics (ESM) and Weber buildings, all located on Ferst Drive and Cherry Streets. Additional on-campus facilities include the Ben T. Zinn Combustion Lab, and the High-Power Electric Propulsion Lab, both located in the Research Park on North Avenue; the Institute's Observatory, located atop the Howey Physics Building; and the autonomous racetrack facility on Marietta Street. Off-campus facilities at Ft. Benning and in Cobb County allow faculty and students tremendous freedom in testing unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAVs) and new space craft designs.

Campus Visits for Prospective Undergraduates

During the Fall of 2020, we have temporarily halted our on-campus visits, to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. Prospective students can get a tour of the campus, virtually, by visiting the Admission Office. They can also find out more about the AE School by clicking on this AE prospective student info session.

During the Fall 2020 semester, we are providing virtual tours of campus on Fridays, from 12 to 1 p.m. To schedule one, please visit the Georgia Tech Admissions page.

Your Key: Your BuzzCard

If you are a student, faculty, or staff person, admittance to most AE facilities is regulated with your BuzzCard. This magnetized ID card is programed to meet the specific access needs of faculty, staff, and students. Keys to specific locales are issued to faculty, staff, and, at the discretion of supervising faculty or staff, to students. Problems with the BuzzCard or requests for keys should go to the AE assistant director for operations, whose office is in Montgomery Knight 311.

If you are working in one of the locked labs or in another restricted environment, you will need to fill out a Key Request form in order to gain access. You may download a form now or obtain one from the AE operations manager in Montgomery Knight 311.

NOTE: To promote social distancing, most buildings have designated entrances and exits and many facilities are temporarily closed to prevent gatherings.This video will help you to navigate the new exits and entrances. Also, many campus employees, including faculty, are working remotely during the Fall 2020 semester. If you need to contact one of the staff or faculty below, please start with email or a phone call. Contact information can be found in the AE online directory.
