Georgia Tech offers the first interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in robotics to students enrolled in a participating school within either the College of Computing or the College of Engineering. A fully integrated, multidisciplinary experience, the program educates a new generation of robotics researchers as well as innovative leaders prepared to make an impact upon entering the workforce.
IRIM serves as the flagship for Tech’s robotics efforts and, therefore, has an integral relationship with many faculty members serving as research advisors to students pursuing the robotics degree. The program includes both coursework and research, with teaching needs served by faculty members in various units across campus.
Georgia Tech’s Ph.D. in robotics is recognized as one of the best in the U.S., and the program’s graduates go on to be leaders in both industry and academia, securing positions at companies and institutions such as Google, KUKA Robotics, MIT, and Carnegie Mellon.
