The School of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) is the largest unit set to move in to Coda at this time and the only school in its entirety that will be transitioning to the new building.
CSE is relocating from KACB to the 13th floor of Coda, where it will neighbor with part of Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). All operations for CSE will remain on the 13th floor, while several faculty members will move to the various research neighborhoods which are spread over 11 floors of the 21-story building.
A variety of work spaces in open areas throughout Coda, such as the one shown here, allow staff, faculty, and students to work and lounge outside of their designated work stations.
The CSE faculty moving to research neighborhoods and their locations are:
Professor and CSE Interim Chair Srinivas Aluru: IDEaS – Floor 12
Associate Professor Le Song: Machine Learning – Floor 11
Associate Professor Jimeng Sun: Health Informatics – Floor 15
Professor Rich Vuduc: IDEaS – Floor 12
In order to be accessible to CSE faculty, staff, and students, CSE Interim Chair and Co-Executive Director of the Institute for Data Engineering and Science (IDEaS) Srinivas Aluru will also be operating from the CSE Chair Office on the 13th floor.
To compliment the research resources in Coda, the building comes equipped with one the largest data centers in the southeast, which includes a high-performance computing (HPC) resource. The $5.2 million HPC resource was acquired through a major research instrumentation award from the National Science Foundation for a research effort led by Aluru.
“This project is exciting from many perspectives, but especially how it is pushing forward data and high performance computing research infrastructure at Georgia Tech,” he said. “It reflects the teamwork of dozens of faculty, and also supports the work of over 50 research scientists and 200 graduate students.”
Once all Georgia Tech units have moved in, Coda will become the institute’s headquarters for data analytics research. The field itself requires significant expertise in computing and to accommodate this newly aggregated research groups’ needs, Georgia Tech is relocating its Office of Information Technology (OIT) to Coda.

The 21-story spiral staircase is part of the building's collaborative core. Elevators in Coda require key card access and lead to three-story atriums that begin on the fifth floor and extend the remaining height of the building.
