The Georgia Institute of Technology, commonly known as Georgia Tech, or, Tech, is a public, coeducational research university in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States. A part of the University System of Georgia, Georgia Tech also has satellite campuses in Savannah, Georgia; Metz, France; Athlone, Ireland; Shanghai, China; and Singapore. The educational institution was founded in 1885 as the Georgia School of Technology as part of Reconstruction era plans to build an industrial economy in the Southern United States. Initially it offered a degree only in mechanical engineering. By 1901 its curriculum had expanded to include electrical engineering, civil engineering, and chemical engineering. In 1948 the school changed its name in order to reflect its evolution from a trade school to a larger and more capable technical institute and research university. Today, Georgia Tech is organized into six distinct colleges containing approximately 31 departments/units, with a strong emphasis on science and technology. It is well-recognized for its programs in engineering, computing, and the sciences, though it also offers degrees in architecture, liberal arts, and management. Georgia Tech's main campus occupies a large part of Midtown Atlanta, to the north bordered by 10th Street and to the south bordered by North Avenue, placing it well in sight of the Atlanta skyline. In 1996, the campus was the site of the athletes' village and a venue for a number of athletic events for the 1996 Summer Olympics. Whereas previously, the midtown location placed Georgia Tech students in the middle of one of the highest metropolitan crime-rate areas in America, the construction of the Olympic village along with subsequent gentrification of the surrounding areas greatly increased public safety. Student athletics, both organized and intramural, are in important part of student and alumni life. The school's intercollegiate competitive sports teams, aka the Yellow Jackets, as well as the nationally recognized fight song Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech, have helped keep Georgia Tech in the national spotlight.
