Between 1992 and 2009 faculty in Georgia Tech’s Systems Realization Laboratory (SRL) mentored many students who are now pursuing successful careers in academia. In this paper the authors reminisce about the creation of the Systems Realization Laboratory at the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech and the mentoring of their former mentees (1992 through 2009) who are pursuing careers in academia.
