  • Advance the fundamental science in the assessment of natural and man-made hazards (e.g. earthquakes, landslides, liquefaction, sea-level rise, hazards in tailing dams, heap leach pads, coal ash facilities) through novel developments in performance-based and risk engineering. ...

  • To develop 2-D to 2-D tunneling structures to enable for smaller, faster, more capable microelectronic devices applied to a broad range of applications such as energy, RF, and sensing.

  • Using artificial intelligence (AI)-based approaches (especially manifold learning) for understanding the delicate rules of nature and utilizing them for forming innovative software- and hardware-based tools for addressing the major challenges in a wide range of disciplines. ...

  • **Limited Admissions for the Spring 2021 Semester** Leverage advances in machine learning and data analytics to enable faster and more accurate calculations of chemical properties using quantum-mechanical techniques such as density functional theory (DFT).

  • This team will return Fall 2021 ...

  • Due to ITAR and other access restrictions this project is limited to US citizens only.

  • To discover how evolution acts on materials properties in microbial systems. Use experiments,  simulations, and analytical theory to elucidate how biological fitness and function emerge from physical principles.

  • We are currently developing a drone delivery system that could be used to deliver small packages on Georgia Tech campus. Assembly of the drone and implementation of package pickup mechanism are nearly complete. Flight testing will begin soon. Upcoming tasks include development of consumer delivery app, construction of delivery station prototype, planning and performance of flight testing,...

  • To design, build, defend, and race an open-wheel formula-style vehicle in the annual Formula SAE competition.

  • To design, build, defend, and race a high-performance off-road vehicle in the annual SAE BAJA competition.

  • ** Previous experience with this team is required **

  • There is a need for the development of new techniques to aide in the conservation of wildlife to prevent extinction and the decrease of biodiversity. Examples of such techniques include the use of drones to mitigate rhino poaching or low-cost equipment that can deter elephants...

  • To improve health outcomes, nutrition, and general living conditions in developing nations and resource-limited environments through a variety of key technologies. These solutions include: sensors for sanitation in challenging environments, improving access to...

  • To discover physical principles of how animals move in complex, challenging environments. Use tools from physics, neuroscience, biomechanics, and robotics to extract mechanism of how animal and engineered systems move, especially with respect to stability, agility, and robustness.

  • NASA, Georgia Tech, and GTRI are developing energy technologies to support future missions to Mars. The VIP M.A.R.S. Team will research, develop, and test renewable energy systems in collaboration with scientists and engineers at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Moon and Mars offer difficult challenges to NASA’s ambitious plan for exploration, including acquisition of reliable and...

  • To produce novel, creative media about recent scientific discoveries and engineering innovations. These include but are not limited to: interactive museum-style exhibitions, online articles and videos, and festival exhibits. Specifically, the team will create one exhibit or demo per semester, and each team member will publish bi-weekly in the online science magazine Charged. ...

  • To study soft, biocompatible materials to design low-profile, unobtrusive wearable and implantable electronics for advancing human healthcare and wellness.

  • Development of an intelligent system to manage and maintain makerspaces.

  • Create, fabricate, and flight test unmanned air vehicles intended for a special purpose or technology demonstration.
