Georgia Tech and Airbus: A Long-standing History

Industry leaders from aerospace giant Airbus and researchers from Georgia Tech’s Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering highlight how research-rich educational programs and an aggressive pursuit of technology and innovation help them tackle today’s most challenging problems in advanced aircraft modeling, analysis and design.

The two entities are joined in a successful public-private partnership in which students, researchers and faculty exchange expertise while working on cutting edge projects in the aerospace industry. Airbus’ strong commitment to doctoral-level research further reinforces Tech’s longstanding focus on developing visionary thinkers to guide the next generation of scientists.

Atlanta and Toulouse, where Airbus is based, have had strong ties since their former mayors Maynard Jackson and Pierre Baudis united the two cities in 1974, forming the Atlanta Toulouse Sister Cities Committee. Georgia Tech continues in this spirit of admiration and collaboration with dynamic partnerships in research, innovation and academics.

This event is co-organized by the Office for Science and Technology at the Embassy of France in the United States and the Georgia Institute of Technology, in partnership with the City of ToulouseAirbus and Airbus-Aerial.
