The combination of academics and career services were the major reasons I chose Tech. Knowing the high technical level of Georgia Tech as well as the high rankings of the QCF program assured me the education I would receive would be useful for my career afterwards. The biggest draw by far was career services however. Having the high placements at solid firms gave me the confidence that I’d be placed well afterwards into a solid career.
