This is Georgia Tech

[MUSIC PLAYING] The global challenges of the
21st century require innovative thinking,
technological ingenuity, and bold action. The Georgia Institute of
Technology is meeting these challenges head on and making
life better for people around the world and in our
own neighborhood. Georgia Tech students are
highly motivated problem solvers who strive for both
personal success and a better world for us all. Our students have won Rhodes
scholarships, tutored and mentored local school children,
and played pivotal roles in groundbreaking
research projects. Georgia Tech definitely
challenges you, but that’s a big part of the reason why
it’s so great to be here. When you finish a tough class or
a really demanding research project, you know you’ve
accomplished something major. Georgia Tech is has one of the
largest technological research enterprises in the
United States. Our world-class faculty are
engaged in a broad range of projects that have real impact
on the quality of life. When I think about research–
and as a faculty member, we do research– I not only think about the
creation of knowledge, I think about how that knowledge
will actually impact people’s lives and make
people’s lives better. This is similar to the work that
we did in Haiti where we came back to Georgia Tech, we developed solutions for safe
housing, and then took that to Haiti to help them develop safe
and affordable ways to construct homes following
the 2010 earthquake. This is a reason that Georgia
Tech, I think, is a very special place in terms of how
they impact people’s lives and impact society. Helping industry to operate
more efficiently and profitably has always
been central to Georgia Tech’s mission. Through our Enterprise
Innovation Institute, we help government and industry apply
science, technology, and innovation to improve
productivity. Among the Institute’s
comprehensive programs is one of the nation’s most respected
technology incubators, The Advanced Technology Development
Center, whose graduate companies have gone
on to raise more than $1 billion in external financing. The culture at Georgia
Tech is remarkable. It is one of innovation. It is one of though
leadership. Whether it’s the faculty, the
administration, the research scientists, or the students,
it’s a culture of innovation which will translate into major
economic development opportunities, both on the Metro
Atlanta area, the state of Georgia, the United States,
and in fact, the globe. Graduating good global citizens
is one of Georgia Tech’s highest strategic
priorities, and we accomplish this goal in a variety
of ways: An international plan option
offered with nearly all of our undergraduate degrees, study
and work abroad programs in nations around the world, and
international education and research platforms in France, Ireland, Panama, and Singapore. Today’s students must have an
education that prepares them for success in a global
marketplace, and Georgia Tech is leading the way in providing
this critical foundation. I did two study abroad programs
in South America that really opened my eyes to see
what it takes to succeed, both personally and professionally,
in a foreign culture. After doing them and coming
back, my whole view of Georgia Tech and the world around
me was changed forever. I would definitely say my career
goals, my personal goals for my life, have changed
for the better. Constantly anticipating and
embracing change has been part of Georgia Tech’s DNA for
more than 125 years. We are passionately pursuing
our goal of defining the technological research
university of the 21st century and improving human life
on a global scale. We look forward to the
possibilities of the next 125 years. [MUSIC PLAYING]
