There are 8 men's and 7 women's teams that compete in the NCAA Division I athletics and the Football Bowl Subdivision. Georgia Tech is a member of the Coastal Division in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The official school colors for Georgia Tech are old gold and white. Navy blue is often used as a secondary color and for alternate jerseys while black has been used on rare occasion. The traditional rival in all sports is in-state University of Georgia. This rivalry is often referred to as Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate. There are also rivalries with out-of-state Auburn and official conference rival Clemson.

The department dedicates about $53 million per year to its sports teams and facilities. Since April 1, 2013, the athletic director of Georgia Tech has been Mike Bobinski, who replaced Dan Radakovich after the latter left for the same position at Clemson.
