Georgia Tech's Commitment to Lifetime Education

The needs of learners are changing, the nature of the workplace is changing, and both are redefining the approach to educational delivery.

In a shifting landscape shaped by a modern industrial revolution, knowledge is churning at an ever-faster rate. As a result, universities are under pressure to supply its learners with new skills and competencies to keep pace with the accelerating workforce. At Georgia Tech, we are leveraging our roots in technological innovation to meet this challenge. From at-scale degrees to flexible learning experiences and alternate credentials, Georgia Tech Professional Education has been a driver of change in lifelong learning.

Our innovative delivery methods and alternative educational models are not only addressing the changing needs of learners and employers, but also supporting a culture of educational innovation that is robust, agile, and adaptive to rapid changes in society.
