The (SES) Society of Engineering Science Technical Meeting is held annually to foster and promote the exchange of ideas and information among the various disciplines of engineering and the fields of physics, chemistry, mathematics, bioengineering and related scientific and engineering fields.
This SES Technical Meeting:
- aims to attract the leading researchers in all engineering and science disciplines, and mathematics
- is recognized as the leading forums for bringing together diverse, interdisciplinary groups of researchers to discuss advances in highly focused symposia
Georgia Tech is the host of the 2012 Society of Engineering Science (SES) 49th Annual Technical Meeting. Founded in 1885, the Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the nation's top research universities, distinguished by its commitment to improving the human condition through advanced science and technology. Its campus occupies 400 acres in the heart of the city of Atlanta, where 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students receive a focused, technologically based education. Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the Institute offers many nationally recognized, top-ranked programs. Undergraduate and graduate degrees are offered in the Colleges of Architecture, Computing, Engineering, Management, Sciences, and the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
Year after year, Georgia Tech is consistently the only technological university ranked in U.S. News & World Report's listing of America's top ten public universities. In addition, Georgia Tech's College of Engineering is consistently ranked in the nation's top five by U.S. News. These impressive national rankings reflect the academic prestige long associated with the Georgia Tech curriculum. Over the past decade, overall research expenditures have nearly doubled, increasing 99 percent to $525 million in 2008, while federal research expenditures increased 150 percent. Georgia Tech now ranks among the top 10 in research expenditures among universities without a medical school.
Mechanics of solids and fluids has deep roots at Georgia Tech across the College of Engineering. A team of representatives from the Schools of Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, and the Department of Biomedical Engineering will be working together to bring you the 2012 Society of Engineering Science (SES) Technical Meeting.
