Ph.D. Program Description

The Ph.D. program in Intelligent Systems and Robotics is designed to train the next generation of researchers and educators to develop technology combining human and machine elements to exploit their respective strengths and mitigate their respective weaknesses. Fundamental to this program is the establishment of successful student-supervisor teams where faculty and researchers provide a direct pathway for integrating young talent in their research and graduate students become essential members of established research groups while flourishing as independent thinkers.

After laying a groundwork common to all, the Ph.D. in Intelligent Systems and Robotics program will provide students with individualized curricula tailored to their interests. The program is comprised of foundational courses in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics followed by select advanced courses. Beyond coursework, the program's cornerstone will be hands-on research in robotics and AI and will leverage the world-class talent at UWF and IHMC.
