The Cognitive Aging specialty area in the Psychology PhD program emphasizes training students about cognition in adulthood. Students gain an understanding of the biological, psychological, and social aspects of aging as they relate to cognitive development over the adult life span.
The Engineering Psychology PhD program focuses on understanding the capabilities and limitations of human performance from the perspective of perception, cognition, and movement control and applying this knowledge to the design of systems and environments that accommodate those capabilities and limitations.
The Quantitative Psychology Program emphasizes the interface between quantitative methods and psychological issues. Graduates will be trained as quantitative specialists, with a substantial background in psychology.
The mission of the Georgia Tech PhD program in Quantitative BioSciences (QBioS) is to enable the discovery of scientific principles underlying the dynamics, structure, and function of living systems. The QBioS program is designed to provide PhD graduates with the skills and expert knowledge necessary to move directly into academia, industry and/or government, where they can apply their specific domain expertise and broadly relevant modeling tools.
