Georgia Tech – Shenzhen Media Briefing on April 23, 2014

Georgia Tech has a “Women in Engineering” program that is dedicated to recruiting top female students into engineering majors and, once enrolled, to ensure the highest level of retention by fostering an environment that encourages intellectual and personal growth.

The Georgia Tech – Shanghai program, which is the pre-cursor of the Georgia Tech – Shenzhen program, has cultivated many outstanding female students. We have with us here today, 3 former Georgia Tech – Shanghai women students who have successfully completed the Georgia Tech master degree program.

Ziyuan Zheng has an undergraduate degree from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics and earned the Georgia Tech Master degree in 2011. She is now working for JP Morgan in Hong Kong.

Xiaolin Liang has an undergraduate degree from Zhejiang University and earned the Georgia Tech Master degree in 2013. She is now working for IBM in Shenzhen.

Qian Zhou has an undergraduate degree from Tianjin University and will be receiving her Georgia Tech Master degree next week. She will soon go to Vancouver, Canada to pursue PhD studies at the University of British Columbia.

We also welcome Qian Yang, who is a Tianjin University student and has recently been admitted by the Georgia Tech Shenzhen program to matriculate in August of this year. We are confident that a bright future is also in store for her.

These pink sunglasses are made just for Georgia Tech female students. We call upon smart young women everywhere who are interested in mathematics, science, and engineering to consider joining us at Georgia Tech – Shenzhen!
