Engineers take a variety of forms, and the Helluva Engineer magazine aims to convey them all through the lens of the College of Engineering.
Welcome to the Issue
This issue of Helluva Engineer is focused on Rising Stars – the engineers who are laying the groundwork to advance the human condition through innovation.
In this issue, you will read about our students, faculty and alumni who have the tenacity, drive and passion to advance engineering, science and technology even in the face of a pandemic. You'll meet Robyn Gatens (ChBE alumna), who is currently acting director for the International Space Center. Our rising star alumni from across each School are working to advance areas such as industry, public policy and academia, to name a few. And, so many of our students are charting a course for a high-powered career in industry or pushing the bounds of research in areas like RNA research that can help with Covid-10 test projects.
A common trait of our engineers, regardless of where they are on their career path, is natural curiosity and the drive to solve problems. And, so many stories in this issue exemplify those values.
Today, our students and researchers continue to do great work even as the pandemic affects our daily lives. Enjoy these stories that showcase our Rising Stars.

The College's Magazine
Georgia Tech's We Are Engineers is the magazine of the College of Engineering. Founded in 2013, the publication is released twice a year: once in the spring and once in the fall. Each of the College’s eight schools appears in its pages. The themed magazine's focus varies per issue, but the publication aims to cover every facet of life as an engineer at Georgia Tech.
The magazine reaches diverse audiences, including alumni, faculty, staff, students, school and College advisory boards, government officials, and administrators from other universities. Because its readership is so broad, We Are Engineers is written less like an academic journal and more like a piece of journalism. Writers and editors strive to clarify complex engineering concepts.
