You learn something new everyday! With the GATech campus being located in Midtown and Midtown West, I’m learning more and more about how I can be of service to the students and faculty of GATech. And it that quest, I learn some pretty intersting stuff!
The GA Tech Research Institute (GTRI) has a center in Smyrna. The Georgia Tech Research Institute Cobb County Research Facility was opened off of Atlanta road on some 52 acres of land hidden from view almost 30 years ago. Renovations to the 160,000-square-foot facility, started in 2009 and were completed earlier this year. GTRI employs 291 people at the site.
The facility houses two major labs for the Institute, the aerospace transportation and advanced systems lab and the sensors and testing magnetic applications lab.
I knew that GA Tech had far reaching impact….I just didn’t know they had other facilities in the Metro Atlanta area!
