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 Roaring 20s - Our New Decade

Welcome to the Issue

This season's issue of We Are Engineers is focused on the Roaring 20s - Our New Decade. 

In this issue, you will read about our engineers who are working on the front lines of space exploration, hypersonic technology, and leading-edge materials,which will change the world as we know it. You’ll also read about the development of house-hold robots and advances in AI. And, these are just a few areas where we excel. 

A lot has changed since we went to work on this issue of the magazine. The issue, at its heart, is about the advancement of technology into the new decade. And the story about our COVID-19 heroes from across the College exemplifies what it means to push the bounds of research for the future. 

Today, our students and researchers continue to do great work at Tech even as the pandemic affects our daily lives. Enjoy these stories that showcase some of that work.

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.
