The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering began an important new chapter in its century-long history in the fall when Georgia Tech’s undergraduate building construction curriculum officially became part of the civil and environmental engineering program. With the change, all undergraduates who wish to study construction will earn a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, marrying the technical excellence the School is known for with a broad array of courses specifically tailored to construction engineering and management careers.

Familiar ground: How a high school internship prepared Kathrine Udell to jump right into research as a freshman

Kathrine Udell in a transportation research lab

When Kathrine Udell stepped on campus at Georgia Tech a few months ago, it was already familiar ground. Udell spent much of her senior year at Kennesaw Mountain High School working on a research project with School of Civil and Environmental Engineering Ph.D. student Atiyya Shaw. In fact, she’d been so active in the work that she already has two published academic papers to her name. Not exactly the typical starting resume for an undergraduate student.
