Tech’s stories come to life in the Living History site. Hundreds of interviews have been conducted, recording the unique memories of the Georgia Tech family – from a former president of the United States to some of Tech’s first female graduates – every person interviewed is dedicated to the ideals of hard work, loyalty, and innovation instilled by Tech. See where all of our great Tech traditions began.
The Georgia School of Technology began classes on Oct. 8, 1888, with the School of Mechanical Engineering and departments of chemistry, mathematics and English. Students were required to take four shop classes: wood, foundry, machine and blacksmith. The curriculum was oriented toward vocational training, and many legislators and Tech administrators believed the school could pay its bills by providing commercial shop work. By January 1889, 129 students registered to work toward the only degree offered, a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering. Learn more about Tech’s great traditions.
