Support the School

The rate of change in the construction industry has continued at a breathtaking pace in the last decade. Innovation in construction has advanced in complexity, scale, and sustainability which has an enormous impact in urban environments. New developments in Midtown Atlanta continue to define the city’s skyline (Georgia Tech’s “back yard”) from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium to Coda at Tech Square. 

To effectively prepare the future leaders in the construction industry, the School’s faculty have developed a rigorous multidisciplinary curriculum that offers courses in construction technology, robotic construction and project management taking advantage of the academics and research at Georgia Tech. 

Substantial resources are vital to meet the needs of the ambitious and high achieving students we recruit. These top-tier students will become the future leaders of the construction industry, the ones to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

For more than six decades, alumnus John Caddell (BC '52) and his wife Joyce,  provided transformative and visionary support for his alma mater. They demonstrated their long term dedication to Georgia Tech through strategic philanthropic investments for endowed scholarships, funding for the Bill Moore Student Success Center, and the Stadium Expansion Project, as well as giving to Roll Call. 

In 2013, the Caddells made a generous philanthropic commitment for a full-scale renovation of the Architecture Annex, home of the School of Building Construction. This transformative gift brought the 60-year-old building up to contemporary status with technologically advanced classrooms, flexible study spaces, faculty offices, and conference rooms. With this dramatic transformation, the School attracts and recruits top-tier students and faculty.

Georgia Tech alumni in the construction industry are successful leaders in the Atlanta professional community. Dedicated to providing opportunities for students and graduates, our alumni are always looking for the next generation of construction or program managers and real estate developers. They are often the connection for summer internship opportunities,  co-ops, or a full-time position after graduation. 

Here are just a few ways in which alumni can get involved and get to know our students:

  • Provide internship or co-op opportunities
  • Host a visit to your firm or to a project in the Atlanta metro area

Competition for the best and brightest applicants has never been tougher. Many of our peer schools have substantial funding -- If we are to compete regionally and nationally, the School must strengthen its resources to attract the best and brightest students. Incentive scholarships and fellowships can directly impact our students' education and their future after graduation.

Both individuals and construction firms can create merit or need-based scholarships or fellowships that will have an impact on the next generation of leaders in the construction industry.
