The Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University faculty members are uniting to train the next generation of engineering students in healthcare robotics technologies, so they can better understand the changing needs of patients and their caregivers and healthcare providers. The official name of the Traineeship program is called ARMS—Accessibility, Rehabilitation, and Movement Science: An Interdisciplinary Traineeship Program in Human-Centered Robotics.
Georgia Tech’s multidisciplinary Ph.D. program in Robotics currently accepts students from various engineering backgrounds. Although it does not have a direct focus on health, it provides sufficient foundational knowledge in the core elements of robotics, which includes control, mechanics, perception, autonomy/artificial intelligence, and human interaction. Participants admitted into the Robotics Ph.D. program are associated with diverse home school departments, including Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Interactive Computing. For the ARMS initiative, students will follow a unique healthcare robotics education program under this umbrella.
