For much of its history, from laboratories to lecture halls, Georgia Tech was seen as a place where women were scarce and their contributions little known. How times have changed.
Why Choose Tech?
Georgia Tech is building a reputation for launching women’s careers, and the past decade has seen a steady increase in the number of women applicants and students here.
At Tech, women have access to the extraordinary opportunities that a Top 10 public university — and one that happens to be among the best technological research universities in the world — provides. From international research trips or mentoring girls in STEM, to working with exceptional faculty and gaining insights from accomplished alumni, women undergraduates are making the most of what Georgia Tech has to offer.
In particular, women who pursue engineering degrees here have access to infrastructure that can enhance their academic experience. Women in Engineering is dedicated to recruiting and retaining the best and brightest female students into engineering majors at Tech, and the Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology serves the same function for women students and faculty in STEM fields.
Achieving and Inspiring
Here are stories from the recent past of some of the unstoppable Tech women whose efforts in the classroom, the boardroom, the lab, and the real world have led to scientific breakthroughs, technological advances, design innovations, and a whole host of noteworthy achievements. They are only a small sampling of the success stories that happen every day at Georgia Tech — on this campus and around the globe.
