Says a person who claims to have gone to Georgia Tech.

You can't cite any employer data that indicates employers would favor G Tech grads with degrees in business, liberal arts, chemistry, etc over a UGA grad. Tech's reputation is centered on the engineering college.

G Tech is a relatively small university compared to UGA and most large state universities, with only 15,000 undergrads. Employers are hiring UGA grads more often, especially outside of engineering.

UGA and G Tech are part of the same Georgia university system so saying one is better than another is kind of weird. It is kind of analogous to saying your arm is better than your leg.

They are governed by the same people. That is why UGA's engineering programs were taken away back in the day during the great depression and given to G Tech.

UGA was the birthplace of engineering in the state of GA, starting in 1844.

As UGA's recently opened engineering college continues to grow, it will become viewed as similar to Michigan.

That's not how it works.

Ok, can you provide any evidence that most employers would prefer a G Tech grad vs a UGA grad for jobs to include non-engineering jobs?

There are people who went to UGA who have become physicians, pharmacists, engineers, accountants, chemists, lawyers, etc so what more would they have gained by going to Georgia Tech.
