On Oct. 6, the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering kicked off the newly established Women in Engineering Leadership Lecture Series with Robyn Gatens as the inaugural speaker. Gatens, director of the International Space Station in the Human Exploration and Operations mission directorate at NASA Headquarters, delivered a talk focused on her career journey and the lessons she has learned along the way.
The lecture series is hosted in conjunction with the Institute for Leadership and Social Impact and Georgia Tech’s ADVANCE Program and is part of the Women of Woodruff, an organization made up of College of Engineering alumnae and friends who are committed to ensuring that women mechanical engineering students and faculty have the tools they need to thrive at Georgia Tech.

Georgia Tech officially kicked off the construction that will further expand the Institute’s footprint in Midtown Atlanta. The third phase of Technology Square will be anchored by two multi-story towers.

The second will be named George Tower, in recognition of Bill and Penny George (pictured above, next to Scheller), and will house the nation’s top-ranked industrial engineering program.
