COVID-19 Notice: Georgia Tech is planning to operate programs abroad for Summer 2021. The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our top priority. Georgia Tech will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic closely and will follow guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of State, and the University System of Georgia. Although we may need to adjust according to this guidance, currently, our plans are to operate programs in 2021 as scheduled. Updates are being provided by the Office of International Education; see updates and more information here.
Berlin is the largest city in Germany and a hub for all of Europe in research, culture, media, and technology. The city was famously divided in two during the Cold War, and since its reunification in 1989 has become equally famous for its youthful population and its diverse, tolerant culture. The city has both a rich artistic heritage and a vibrant start-up scene – a great place to spend a summer semester!

“Having small class sizes allowed for much greater communication and I always felt like the professors were looking out for the students. They made sure we were taking full advantage of living abroad and not just drowning in course work.”
“The best part about living in Berlin was immersing myself in the culture. It was great to participate almost as a local and try out the different foods and areas of the city that a tourist might not see. You just can’t get that on a vacation.”
-- Kevin Byrne, B.S. CS ‘21
“I recommend this program because of the combination of location and classes. Berlin has so many things to do and so many things to see. The classes offered are mostly classes everyone needs to take for their major. And I loved the street food-- I ate at Curry 36 almost every day!”
-- Brenden Waits, B.S. CS ‘22
