Although the Petit Institute is not a school or department with traditional classes, the Petit Institute is involved in graduate student education on many levels. The Institute invests in non-traditional education experiences to support the bio-community's growing graduate student population.
Bioscience and Bioengineering Unified Graduate Students (BBUGS)
The BBUGS group serves as the core student group for the bioengineering and bioscience community. The group's home is the Petit Institute, and is open to anyone that has a bio-interest! Find out how to get involved!
Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs of Study
Imagine being able to chart your own course? The Petit Institute is home to two interdisciplinary graduate programs that allow you to do just that. Why be restricted with your classes and courework when you can design or bio-engineer your future!
The BioE Graduate Program is the most innovative and integrative program available at Georgia Tech, giving the students the flexibility and creativity to pursue interdisciplinary research and create their own future.
The mission of the Georgia Tech Bioinformatics Graduate Program is to educate and prepare students to reach the forefront of leadership in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology
