Honors Organismal Biology
The laboratory portions of these courses are designed as research service-learning labs that integrate relevant community service with academic coursework to enhance learning, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.
Honors ecology is a team based, problem based course in general ecology. There are no lectures: students are expected to identify the relevant knowledge, learn and apply it to the given problem and are mentored by faculty through this process.
Capstone Design is an interdisciplinary civil and environmental design experience. Students form teams of 3 – 5 people, and these teams function as “companies” that provide consulting services to a selected sponsor on a specific design project.
Planning, design and operation of systems of air, rail, water and highway facilities, including those for bicycles and pedestrians. In this course, we will focus on the need, purpose and design for multimodality. Why is a multimodal transportation system important?
Environmental Policy and Politics
The course will focus on what constitutes effective environmental policy. First, we will analyze the evolution of environmental policy and actors in the environmental arena.
Vertically Integrated Project: Bee Snap
This course is part of the Vertically Integrated Projects program, where students get credit for working on ongoing projects over multiple semesters. As part of the Bee-SNAP team, students will design devices and computational approaches to study bees in urban habitats.
Vertically Integrated Project: Configurable Computing and Embedded Systems
This course is part of the Vertically Integrated Projects program, a program where students get credit for working on ongoing projects over multiple semesters. This VIP course explores how embedded sensor and computing technology can be used to promote sustainability in a smart city framework.
The search for life beyond the Earth is reaching new heights. So what are we looking for, and how will we know when we find it?
Understanding Markets with Data Science
This course treats community as its central theme, and focuses on the use of data science to understand how individuals interact with each other, and how organizations and firms may gain insights and design policies that better serve individuals across various communities.

Chemical Principles II Laboratory
Fundamentals and Challenges for a Sustainable Chemical Enterprise
In the chemical enterprise (industry, government and academia), chemists and engineers are involved in and are responsible for the development of new products, materials and manufacturing processes.
Thermodynamics plays a critical role in the development of new systems which provide energy, reduce waste, and mitigate global climate change. This course will provide you with the fundamental skills necessary to develop strategies to solve a range of emerging engineering based problems.
Vertically Integrated Project: Engineering for Social Innovation
This course is part of the Vertically Integrated Projects program, where students get credit for working on ongoing projects over multiple semesters. The Engineering for Social Innovation VIP team teaches sustainability through hands-on projects that serve the global community.
Ecology Lab covers basic ecological phenomenon using urban ecological settings as the backdrop. As a class, we visit areas in the metro-Atlanta community to understand human-environment interactions within our ecosystem.
Foundations of Sustainable Systems
How can we accelerate progress towards a more sustainable world? How do we create sustainable systems for the 21st century?
English Service Learning for Sustainable Futures
This English language course will explore and create solutions toward a Sustainable Future for cities here and around the world. Our local focus will be Atlanta, where we hear speakers, read about, and visit examples of sustainable solutions in food and energy.
Transfer students will start their Georgia Tech experience on the right foot with this GT 2000 seminar which covers topics critical to a transfer student’s success.
Sociology of Medicine and Health
HumaniTech - VIP
GT faculty are working on a range of ongoing and exploratory humanitarian research topics. The purpose of this course is to introduce students to this research and get them involved to help advance the work.
Numerical Methods in Chemical Engineering
Many engineering problems require the use of advanced numerical methods for finding solutions to systems of linear, nonlinear, and differential equations, optimizing functions, and analyzing data.
African American Rhetorics of Resistance
As an SLS-affiliated course, African American Rhetorics of Resistance will focus specifically on the role of community in African American arts and letters. Black music, art, and literature is known for exploring racism, but it is equally invested in the power of joy and coalition.
