The Georgia Institute of Technology announced that Georgia Tech-Lorraine, the Institute’s first international campus, will now be known as Georgia Tech-Europe (GTE).
This change reflects the growth of the Institute’s presence in Europe and aligns with its strategic objectives of amplifying impact, promoting innovation, connecting globally and expanding ‘access. The name change will create a more recognizable name and expand the Georgia Tech brand in the region and across greater Europe. This expansion will result in greater partnerships with European institutions and opportunities for increased student involvement in European industry.
“Georgia Tech-Europe is a strategic evolution of the Institute’s international presence and global reach,” said Steve McLaughlin, Georgia Tech provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “The rebranding allows us to further grow our footprint and expand our education, research and innovation across the region, greater Europe and the world.”
Since 1990, Georgia Tech-Lorraine has served over 11,000 students from around the world and has proudly hosted some of the best university programs, schools and research centers in Europe. Located in Metz, France, the Georgia Tech-Europe campus is strategically located in a border area of Luxembourg, Germany and Belgium.
The campus is close to several institutions of the European Union (EU), including the judicial body of the EU and many European commissions located in Luxembourg, as well as the seat of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France. Additionally, Brussels is home to the headquarters of the European Commission, the Council of the EU, the European Council, and the European Parliament.
