Date Completed: May 2016
From August 2015 to May 2016, research and design work was performed for the Department of Institutional Research (IR) in the Georgia Tech College of Engineering. Data visualizations were created from publicly available data to highlight the goals, capabilities and accomplishments of Georgia Tech. This work culminated in design prototypes of dashboards for both the IR department and Institute regarding research funding and undergraduate enrollment trends in regards to gender and race. Examining enrollment trends at Tech helped clarify important aspects of Tech’s processes and helped highlight issues that could be addresses. Moving ahead, a strong framework has been established for the ways in which the Georgia Tech College of Engineering can collaborate with the College of Design.
