Georgia Tech begins largest campaign in history; goal tops $2 billion

External News Details

There's a special, Georgia Tech-centric reason why the new fundraising campaign for the Institute — a school known for science, engineering and computing — has an extremely specific goal of $2,147,483,647. "This figure was the largest known prime number by mathematicians from 1772 to 1867, and in computer science it represents the largest value that a signed 32-bit integer field can hold,” Georgia Tech said in its announcement. The campaign, the largest in its history, will raise money for need- and merit-based scholarships, as well as invest in student entrepreneurship and international recruitment. Philanthropy also will support faculty chairs and professorships, research facilities, intercollegiate athletics, campus enhancements, new global partnerships, and local programs that focus on science education in Atlanta high schools and in school districts around the state.
