Georgia Tech Featured in New Google Ad
Imaginary Search Leads Aspiring Young Astronaut to Georgia Tech
Georgia Tech is flying high in Google’s latest advertising campaign.
The video, “Here to help: Take on the world,” begins with an adult asking a young girl what she wants to be when she grows up. Her response? “I’m going to be an astronaut,” followed by Google searches on how to become an astronaut, “make your own spacesuit,” “famous female astronauts,” and “colleges for aerospace engineering.”
That’s where Tech comes in. The Georgia Institute of Technology appears as the top search result for best aerospace engineering schools, and the user clicks on it.
And with good reason: Georgia Tech’s Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering is currently ranked second in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for its undergraduate programs. What’s more, 14 Tech graduates have launched into orbit, including three women – Jan Davis, Susan Still Kilrain, and Sandra H. Magnus. Georgia Tech is also the nation’s top producer of female engineers.
“It is an exciting time to be in the field of aerospace engineering,” says school chair Mark Costello. Especially now that the most-used search engine in the world has taken notice.
