Enhancing the Human Experience Through Robotics

Georgia Tech’s Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) serves as an umbrella under which robotics researchers, educators, and students from across campus can come together to advance the many high-powered and diverse robotics activities at Georgia Tech. 

IRIM’s mission is to create new and exciting opportunities for faculty collaboration; educate the next generation of robotics experts, entrepreneurs, and academic leaders; and partner with industry and government to pursue truly transformative robotics research. 

The depth and breadth of IRIM breaks through disciplinary boundaries and allows for transformative research that transitions from theory to robustly deployed systems featuring next-generation robots. 

Our Industrial Partners Program allows members to explore opportunities for research collaborations, testing services, consulting relationships, student hiring, and other valuable interactions. 

Georgia Tech offers the first interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in robotics, an undergraduate summer program for underrepresented minorities, and a traineeship program in healthcare robotics.
