Hidden Georgia Tech: The Machine Shop

By Victor Rogers nov. 23, 2015

Across the Georgia Tech campus, hidden spaces and forgotten places await rediscovery. Some are relics of an earlier time, difficult to find and explore. Others are very much in view, but often overlooked. Hidden Georgia Tech is a photo essay series highlighting places on campus that are hidden in plain sight.


Located in an understated industrial building at 676 Marietta Street, the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI)'s Machine Services is an active machine shop that can design, fabricate, repair, and modify parts or entire devices for research projects. The Machine Shop works on designs ranging from miniature gears used in heart medicine research to large-scale structural welding projects as tall as 35 feet.
