Welcome

The Web Science initiative at Georgia Tech seeks to understand the impact of the Internet, and help us invent its future. Web technologies are playing an increasingly central role in business, education, entertainment, health, and research. Understanding these phenomena and engineering their future requires a new interdisciplinarity. We aim to strengthen ties among disciplines across campus, explore possible new interdisciplinary educational programs, and build stronger ties between Georgia Tech and the web industry.
