We Are Engineers

Engineers take a variety of forms, and the We Are Engineers magazine aims to convey them all through the lens of the College of Engineering.

The Georgia Issue

Welcome to the Issue

This season's issue of We Are Engineers is centered around our roots, Georgia Grown.

There is such a rich history here, and over the years, Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering has played a big part in shaping that history. From peanut farming to poultry, our engineers are involved in agricultural initiatives across the state, providing advanced technology that powers industries. You’ll also find many of our alums working to move Georgia’s economic needle — Ben Turnipseed has brought thousands of jobs to Augusta with his waste treatment plants. Southwire Company, started by an engineering alum, was the first to bring electricity to much of the state. These are just a few of the stories you’ll read in the following pages. 

Enjoy as we travel across the state to bring you tales of our exceptional engineers doing amazing things for our metropolis of Atlanta and cities as small as Claxton, Georgia (with a population of just 2,000!).

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.
