The establishment of undergraduate degrees in civil, electronic/electrical and mechanical, will meet the needs of additional Georgia high school graduates seeking careers in engineering and has been developed for graduates seeking careers as power systems engineers, control engineers for process control and industrial needs, and electronic engineers for designing advanced systems for bio-based companies. UGA has complementary engineering programs in computer systems engineering, environmental engineering, biomechanical engineering, biological engineering, and agricultural engineering to support these new programs.

The Medical College of Georgia and the University of Georgia have partnered to create a four-year medical education program in Athens to help alleviate a statewide shortage of physicians that threatens the health of Georgians. The MCG/UGA Medical Partnership combines the significant instructional and research resources of UGA, the state’s flagship land-grant research university, with the expertise of MCG, Georgia’s only public medical school.

The University’s farms, forests, seashore preserves, experiment stations and international residential campuses extend the boundaries even farther. Today the University is a major research institution with more than 7,100 graduate students. Increased international competition for intellectual resources has underscored the need for the United States to have a highly educated leadership and workforce. The Graduate School supports the University of Georgia’s three strategic directions: building the new learning environment, maximizing research opportunities and competing in a global economy.
