Welcome to the Stinger Battalion!

LTC Bradford Morgan

A Word from the Professor of Military Science

Thank you for your interest in the Georgia Tech Army ROTC program! Here at Georgia Tech and our partner schools of Kennesaw State University, Emory University, and Agnes Scott College, we expect our cadets to develop into the best leaders, scholars, athletes, and Soldiers they can be. Located in the heart of Atlanta, we study hard, train hard, and strive to prepare our Cadets to become the very best they can be. Sting ‘Em!

What we are?

Army ROTC is a program that will allow you to take elective (Military Science) courses along with your academic core curriculum coursework. Start Strong in life – enroll in Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), the college elective for undergraduate and graduate students that provides unrivaled leadership training for success in any career field.  You can enroll your freshman and sophomore years without any obligation. You will learn the building blocks for leadership skills and tactics which will allow you to succeed as an Army Officer. If you have a passion for it, you can find a place to fit in the Army as an officer and get the training you need to turn that passion into a career. We offer merit-based scholarships that can pay up to the full cost of tuition and open educational opportunities. Whether you’re in high school, college or already in the Army, you can become an officer in today’s Army through joining ROTC.

​Who are we looking for?

The “Stinger Battalion” is looking for Students who strive towards excellence and want something more out of their college experience. We want students who are leaders that are ready to be challenged physically and mentally as they learn what it takes to be an officer in the U.S. Army.

About the Stinger Battalion

Army ROTC at Georgia Tech has a rich history dating back to the National Defense Act of 1916, with the program beginning in 1917. Over the past century, over 7000 Georgia Tech cadets have commissioned as 2nd Lieutenants.

Cadre and Staff

Georgia Tech ROTC is run by a staff of cadre and civilians, representing 7 branches of the Army with over 150 years of combined active-duty service. Cadre act as advisors, mentors, and instructors for the Cadet body.


Georgie Tech cadets participate in a multitude of Volunteering events, both in and out of uniform. Working either through the ROTC program itself or the student run Georgia Tech Cadet Association, Cadets have done everything from Community Service like Habitat for Humanity to presenting the nation’s Colors at the Mercedez Benz stadium.

Special Teams and Additional Training

ROTC Cadets have many opportunities to improve their mental, physical, or technical ability through participation on the Ranger Challenge team or attending Proficiency schools like Airborne or Air Assault School, or furthering their educational and professional development through the Project GO study abroad program, completing Department of Defense summer internships, or interacting with current 2nd Lieutenants at Cadet Troop Leader Training.
