Offered jointly by the College of Computing and the College of Engineering, Georgia Tech's Ph.D. Program in Robotics is the first interdisciplinary robotics degree of its kind.
In addition, the dissertation must be accompanied by astatement declaring that the student has read and understood theUniversity's plagiarism guidelines.
If a project requires anything more, this needs to be requested at the time of writing the proposal, and the supervisor needs to explicitly ask for additional resources if necessary (start by talking to the CDT projects organiser, below).
Interactive entertainment and computer-animated visual effects are now part of our mainstream culture. Creating such computer-generated imagery, however, is no trivial task. It requires a delicate blending of art with science by teams of highly skilled professionals, including artists, animators, writers, designers, engineers and software developers working long hours with cutting-edge technology and tools. Currently there are very few academic programs at four-year research universities adequately preparing students for such positions. The Master of Science in Engineering in Computer Graphics and Game Technology (CGGT) was created specifically to address this need. .
Acceptance into a participating School's program does not necessarily indicate acceptance into the Robotics Ph.D. program. Please work with individual schools to determine your status.
When I began writing science fiction in the middle '60s, it seemed very easy to find ideas that took decades to percolate into the cultural consciousness; now the lead time seems more like eighteen months.
(I have heard thoughtful comic book writers worry about how to have spectacular effects when everything visible can be produced by the technologically commonplace.) We will see automation replacing higher and higher level jobs.
I advise, in cooperation with my PhD students, several Master thesis per year in the fields of Robotics, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. If you look for a thesis advised by me, send me an email, I usually have new proposal every 4-6 months including thesis with companies.

As part of your admission material, you will have to write a project proposal according to a suggested format. This proposal is meant to evaluate your attitude and it is not binding to the actual PhD thesis yet. Sometimes you are asked also to give an reference name, in case we came in contact in advance, and we agreed on the project proposal, you could give mine. However, this does not mean anything special, there it will be a commission that will evaluate candidates and they will decide according to the CV, the project proposal and the motivation letter. Only once you get admitted you will able to decide for the official name of the thesis Advisor.

The written test is generally based on the topics related to general aptitude (logical reasoning, analytical and numerical ability, etc.), writing skills, and basic courses of various disciplines at undergraduate level. The candidates who do not qualify in the written test need not appear for interview. The reserved category candidates will be given due relaxation in cutoff marks as per the norms.
A central feature of strongly superhuman entities will likely be their ability to communicate at variable bandwidths, including ones far higher than speech or written messages.
