Mechanical Engineering

Engineering Ambassador


Hi! I am Georgia Hanby, a senior studying Mechanical Engineering. I am happy to represent the College of Engineering as an ambassador and work on the Outreach team to inspire k-12 students with the wonders of engineering. On campus I am the Vice President of NC State’s chapter of Society of Women Engineers, I represent The GREEN Program as a Student Ambassador, and I am a Grand Challenges Scholar with a focus on making solar energy more economical. I also participate in undergraduate research, investigating applications of organic photovoltaic solar cells and designing custom testing apparatuses. I am passionate about sustainability and environmental justice. After graduation I want to earn my master’s degree in renewable energy engineering, and after that I want to help innovate the energy industry with sustainable technology.
