Continuing Education

Taught by Georgia Tech faculty and industry-experienced instructors, our flexible-format short programs—lasting anywhere from one to eight days—yield knowledge and skills for immediate application and maximum impact. Offered through Tech's Professional Education division, these courses are ideal for professionals who wish to earn continuing education units (CEUs) for career upgrade requirements, or they may be taken as part of a series for a professional certificate.

Sampling of Available Robotics-Related Courses

Human Systems Integration (DEF 4504P)
Discover how to address human-related issues in system development in an integrated manner. Explore the principles of human factors engineering, personnel selection, training, safety, and other HSI technical domains. Learn how these activities across these separate areas should be integrated to reduce personnel costs and improve system performance. Find out how to use an HSI program to optimize total system performance, minimize total ownership costs, and ensure that your system is built to accommodate the characteristics of your user population that will operate, maintain, and support it.

Guidance, Navigation and Control: Theory and Applications (DEF 1004P)
Discover how to address human-related issues in system development in an integrated manner. Explore the principles of human factors engineering, personnel selection, training, safety, and other HSI technical domains. Learn how these activities across these separate areas should be integrated to reduce personnel costs and improve system performance. Find out how to use an HSI program to optimize total system performance, minimize total ownership costs, and ensure that your system is built to accommodate the characteristics of your user population that will operate, maintain, and support it.

Applied Design of Experiments (DOE) II: Applied DOE for Test and Evaluation (DEF 5007P​)
Study lessons and case studies of the application of Design of Experiments (DOE) in Test and Evaluation (T&E). Learn the perspectives of both statisticians and Department of Defense testers on how DOE can be effectively applied to test design and overall system evaluation. Begin with a basic overview of statistic principles and hypothesis testing, then concentrate on test designs, analyzing data from tests, and how to handle difficulties that arise in test plans. Specific difficulties of interest will include limited live tests, combining live and virtual test data, working with very large test spaces, and analyzing systems with discontinuous or nonlinear responses.​
