The Georgia Tech President, Bud Peterson wrote a great piece, Reflecting on the Space Shuttle's Last Flight

This final launch of the space shuttle is momentous for all Americans, and it is especially meaningful for us at Tech. There are 14 Georgia Tech graduates who have flown on the shuttle and a huge number of engineers and scientists who have helped to make the U.S. space program successful. Hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of Georgia Tech alumni have worked for NASA over the years as researchers, engineers and administrators, including about 150 full-time engineers and co-ops currently employed today at facilities such as the Johnson, Kennedy and Marshall Space Flight Centers. Nearly one-third of the research conducted by faculty in our School of Aerospace Engineering is supported by NASA.

Here is a list of all the Georgia Tech NASA astronauts and administrators via Wikipedia
