Engineering solutions innovations and discoveries

Since 1934, the Georgia Tech Research Institute and its predecessor, the State Engineering Experiment Station, have applied the principles of science - along with disciplined inquiry, curiosity, persistence and old-fashioned hard work - to solving complex problems.
