PROBLEM SOLVING. The pioneering Georgia legislators and regents who launched the State Engineering Experiment Station – known today as the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) – would no doubt be pleased if they could see today what they started 75 years ago. While they might not recognize today’s GTRI, the organization’s fundamental purpose would be very familiar: real-world research that solves the toughest problems facing government and industry. For GTRI, the 75th anniversary year was like no other. From record-setting research awards to aggressive hiring of world-class scientists and engineers, GTRI grew not only in size and prestige – but also in impact. In many organizations, this kind of success would provide a well-deserved opportunity to rest on its accomplishments – but not at GTRI. While our people are proud of what they have achieved, their greatest satisfaction comes from regularly seeing the positive impact their work has on the world in which we live. Every day, our problem-solving research touches a broad range of industrial companies and government organizations. It’s a legacy that began 75 years ago and will continue as long as there is a need for innovative solutions to difficult problems. Welcome to GTRI. Problem. Solved.
