Georgia Tech stated that Georgia Tech Lorraine, the Institute’s first overseas campus, will henceforth be known as Georgia Tech Europe (GTE).
This change is in line with the Institute’s strategic objectives of expanding impact, promoting innovation, global connectedness, and wider access. It also reflects the Institute’s expanding presence in Europe. Georgia Tech’s brand is now more well-known in the area and in Europe thanks to the name change. Increased collaborations with European academic institutions and chances to increase student involvement in European business are brought about by this expansion.
“Georgia Tech-Europe is a strategic advancement of the Institute’s international footprint and global reach,” said Steve McLaughlin, President and Vice President of Academic Affairs, Georgia Tech. “This renaming will allow us to further expand our footprint and expand our teaching, research and innovation across the region, Greater Europe and around the world.”
Over 11,000 students from all over the world have attended Georgia Tech-Lorraine since it opened in 1990, and it is pleased to house some of the continent’s top academic institutions, schools, and research institutes. The Georgia Tech Europe campus is situated in the strategically important French city of Metz, close to the borders of Luxembourg, Germany, and Belgium.
The European Union (EU) Judiciary, numerous European Commissions with offices in Luxembourg, and the European Parliament’s Strasbourg, France, headquarters are all within close proximity to the campus. The European Commission, the EU Council, the European Council, and the European Parliament are all located in Brussels.
