Recently, there was a huge donation to advance Parkinson's research, and now I'm thinking about how to infuse Parkinson's research into my project. The amount of opportunity that is there when you're actively seeking to advance your work — but oftentimes passively, because of the resources and the respect that the researchers have here — makes it easy to produce great work and impactful work.
I know the BME curriculum has helped prepare me to go into industry, but one thing that sets Georgia Tech engineers apart is an emphasis not just on hard skills — being able to do math or science. It’s also important to know how to work on teams, how to communicate effectively, how to tell not only your story, but to share information that might be very dry or difficult to understand. It’s an important balance.
The project-based classes for the program have created an amazing environment for all students and really challenges us to constantly keep learning new skills. Of course, this is only possible because of the amazing professors and academic advising staff, who really make the Department as successful and well known as it is.
The Georgia Tech Biomedical Engineering Department invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow to join a multidisciplinary team that is leading a department-wide project to implement revolutionary change in engineering education practices. Our vision is to educate engineers who understand that a diverse and inclusive engineering workforce is better able to find and solve new and compelling problems, and who have the skills and disposition to seek out, form, and thrive on diverse and inclusive teams.
