2008 CEE Alumni Weekend in NYC

CEE's going to take a bite out of the Big Apple!

The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering invites you to join us in 2008 and discover the impact of Georgia Tech on New York City. The 2nd Annual CEE Alumni event offers an opportunity for you to privately tour reconstruction and transit projects surrounding the World Trade Center site.
