Alumni Homecoming 2017

How a College of Sciences Degree Helped These Alumni Create Their Next
One was on the ground floor of the computing revolution. Another broke one glass ceiling after another in the “boys' club” of the oil industry. Another works to bring NASA astronauts back to Earth, safe and sound.

All of them used their College of Sciences degrees to make a difference in their professions. For some, that path took a turn because of what they learned about science – and themselves – at Georgia Tech. Five of our notable alumni share their memories of life at Georgia Tech, the lessons they learned that they applied in their careers, and what they would tell the next first-year students about how to make the most of their time in the College of Sciences.
