Graduate Embedded Certificate in BioRobotics
The Biorobotics Certificate program is offered through the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The program, an initiative resulting from the NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program in healthcare robotics, is open to graduate students enrolled in any degree program at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The motivation for developing this certificate program is to encourage the development of bold, new, transformative, and scalable models for STEM graduate training in robotics.
The Biorobotics Certificate will equip each student with the fundamentals of robotics coupled with engineering, biological science, and ethics. It is an interdisciplinary program that expands opportunities for students in emerging field of biorobotics.
