“It’s a pleasure and an honor to represent alumni of this caliber. From cybersecurity and AI to mobile commence and virtual reality educational tools, these alumni are pushing forward on what’s possible in their fields and using what they’ve learned at Georgia Tech to create change,” said Charles Isbell, College of Computing dean and the John P. Imlay Jr. chair.
The annual 40 Under 40 program showcases how Tech graduates impact every industry worldwide and work to improve the way we live through their diligence and expertise from an early age. Nominees, who must have completed at least one semester at Georgia Tech and be under the age of 40 as of June 30, 2022, were scored using a 25-point rubric by a committee of 24 faculty, staff, and volunteers who collectively represented all Georgia Tech colleges.
“This has quickly become one of my favorite traditions,” says Alumni Association president Dene Sheheane. “The opportunity to recognize alumni who are taking strides to improve the world we live in is such an honor for our organization. I know we will learn from and be inspired by this dynamic group of young leaders.”
This is the third year that the Alumni Association has recognized alumni with a 40 Under 40 list. In the inaugural year, five GT Computing alumni were named to the list. In 2021, three alumni were highlighted.
