Message from Arijit Raychowdhury
As we reflect on the past fiscal year, it’s evident that our dedication to excellence has propelled us to remarkable heights. In the following pages of the 2022-2023 Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) annual report, you’ll learn more about our achievements, innovations, and the strides we’ve made in shaping the future of electrical and computer engineering education and research.
One significant number to underscore our commitment to pushing the boundaries of knowledge is this year’s record amount of sponsored research funding. We are proud to announce that this year our research funding reached $81 million, underscoring our position as leaders in the field.
In our pursuit of staying at the forefront of technological advancements, we have significantly grown our focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI). The ever-evolving landscape of AI presents both opportunities and challenges, and our programs are dedicated to equipping students with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in this dynamic field. Our investment in AI research and education has positioned us to contribute to groundbreaking discoveries and innovations.
As part of our commitment to educational excellence, we were thrilled to launch our Curriculum Partnership Initiative. The initiative represents our dedication to staying current with industry demands and ensuring that our curriculum remains both relevant and innovative. By forging partnerships with industry leaders, we are enhancing the educational experiences of our students and preparing them for success in the real world.
In line with our mission to nurture the holistic growth of our students, we have taken a significant step by creating the Office of Student Engagement and Well-Being. Our students are not just learners; they are the future leaders of the industry. This office provides comprehensive support, guidance, and resources to ensure that students thrive academically, emotionally, and socially during their time with us.
Our commitment to continuing growth extends beyond our institution — it’s about cultivating a much-needed domestic workforce of electrical and computer engineers.Arijit Raychowdury- Steve W. Chaddick School Chair and Professor
Looking ahead, we are excited about the bright future that awaits us. Our commitment to continuing growth extends beyond our institution — it’s about cultivating a much- needed domestic workforce of electrical and computer engineers. By empowering our students, fostering research excellence, and collaborating with industry partners, we are paving the way for a future where innovation and engineering excellence drive progress and change the world for the better.
As we navigate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, we do so with gratitude for your continued support and confidence in us. Together, we are shaping the future of engineering education and research, and we are excited to be partners in this journey with you.
