ECE Transfer Initiative for Engineering Scholars (TIES)

Welcome to the Transfer Initiative for Engineering Scholars (TIES) website!  TIES is funded through a competitive review process by the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Program (S-STEM).  We are proud to announce that the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) has been awarded this grant to benefit students transferring  from two and four year schools and majoring in electrical or computer engineering.  TIES was first developed in 2009 as an NSF S STEM grant and was a highly successful program.  Funding was renewed in the Fall 2015 semester.  TIES consists of two components:   TIES Enrichment Program (activities and programs designed to encourage and support academic and personal success of transfer students to ECE at Georgia Tech) and TIES Scholarships (need-based scholarship ranging from $3000 to $10000).  

As the TIES Co-Directors, we look forward to working with the ECE transfer students and helping them succeed at Georgia Tech.
