Cabrera Highlights Institute Accomplishments

President Ángel Cabrera delivered the annual Institute Address on Thursday, Sept. 2, virtually to nearly 750 viewers on YouTube and to a masked audience in the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons.

“Before I highlight the incredibly impressive work we did this past year,” he said, “I first want to address what is on all of our minds these days — how to keep our community safe while we deliver on our crucially important education and research work.”

Refreshing Our Visual Brand to Align with Our Mission

The Georgia Institute of Technology has revealed a new system of logos and visuals, unifying the community around a singular, widely recognized icon — the interlocking GT. 

Over the past four decades, the interlocking GT has represented one aspect of the Institute -- the competitive spirit of Georgia Tech athletics. As a result, the symbol is highly recognizable for parents, prospective students, and peer institutions. The same interlocking GT will now serve to celebrate our entire dynamic community of students, alumni, faculty, researchers, and staff. 

Tech Students Complete American Solar Challenge

In their second attempt at the American Solar Challenge, a group of Georgia Tech students made it from Independence, Missouri, to Las Vegas, New Mexico, in a solar-powered vehicle they built on campus.

Get Tested. Get Vaccinated. Get Rewarded.

Georgia Tech continues to take a multipronged approach to preventing and mitigating the risk of coronavirus as more students, faculty, and staff return to campus this fall. Without question, the vaccine offers the best defense against the pandemic, and, if you have not done so, we urge you to consult with a medical professional and consider getting vaccinated now. Doing so at Tech is easy and free.
