Welcome to WTS at Georgia Tech!

The student chapter of WTS at Georgia Institute of Technology was one of the first unofficial student chapters to form. In 2014, WTS at Georgia Tech became an official chapter of WTS International. We are primarily composed of female graduate students in Civil Engineering, Planning, and other Transportation-related fields, but we welcome all Georgia Tech students, as well as non-students, to join us for our educational and social events, volunteer outings, and other activities.
