Abstract:
The Georgia Tech School of Aerospace Engineering has roots in the Georgia Tech Military School of Aviation which was briefly established in 1917. Georgia Tech graduates, both from ROTC and regular graduations have made substantial contributions to the military services ever since. In addition, the Military Services have funded numerous education and research grants and programs to the School of AE which have helped make it the top graduate and undergraduate public aerospace school in the USA. This presentation will highlight these contributions from Georgia Tech School of AE graduates to the Military Services, as well as major programs that the Military Services have established and funded at Georgia Tech.

The original founders and the first Class of 1917 are illustrated in the figure below.
