Georgian Technical University
Georgian Technical University (GTU) is the main and largest technical university in Georgia. It is located in the capital city of Tbilisi. Georgian Technical University was founded in 1922 as a polytechnic faculty of Tbilisi State University. The first lecture was delivered by Georgian mathematician Professor Andrea Razmadze. In 1928, it transformed into an independent institution called “Georgian Polytechnic Institute” and gained university status by 1990.
For the past eighty years, Georgian Technical University has been providing over 60% of Georgia’s engineering, chemistry, and scientific industry specialists. While Tbilisi State University focuses on popular fields like Civil Law or Economics, GTU has maintained its tradition of producing technical specialists for the industry and exact sciences. In recent years, GTU has expanded its offerings and established the “Caucasus Business School” in collaboration with Tbilisi State University and Georgia State University (Atlanta, Georgia, USA). It has also introduced faculties for German Studies, Franco-Georgian Studies, and a “Cisco Networking Academy”. Additionally, GTU has thirteen affiliated institutes spread across the country.
GTU follows the ECTS grading scale and awards degrees and diplomas such as the Diploma of Specialist, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, and Master of Science. The duration of the first three degrees ranges from four to four-and-a-half years of full-time studies, while the Master of Science degree requires one-and-a-half to two years of full-time studies. Most students, excluding those in humanities or arts fields, undergo rigorous training in mathematics and fundamental sciences during their studies at GTU. The university has strong connections with the “Andrea Razmadze Institute of Mathematics of Georgia,” the leading mathematical research institute in the Transcaucasian region.
