What We Do

RoboGrads serves to represent the interests of graduate students who are involved in research labs in the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM). Specifically, RoboGrads:

  • Acts as liaisons between IRIM and their departments by assembling academic guides for students, forming reading groups, and organize student seminars throughout the year
  • Informs robotics students about upcoming events, opportunities, and news
  • Works with the local community to introduce them to robotics at Georgia Tech through outreach presentations, hands-on activities with students, and lab tours
  • Serves as a mediator between the graduate students in the Robotics PhD program and faculty
  • Encourages faculty-student interactions through social events and organize activities outside of academic settings for students to interact


Some of our activities and events include:

  • Fall Orientation
  • Faculty/Student Mixers
  • Qualifying exams FAQ
