View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Graduate Students (Masters)
Graduate Students (PhD)

Description:
This project supports the development of a multi-disciplinary doctoral training program focused on designing and studying health-assistive smart envronments.The goal of this IGERT program is to provide doctoral students with integrated training in computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, psychology, sociology, and health care to support the design of smart environments.

IGERT participants will conduct research to address the questions of whether technology can automatically monitor and analyze human health and behavior, whether it can simulate human behavior and activities, whether it can enhance human physical and cognitive abilities, and whether these technologies can be accepted by society.

This program is intended to make a contribution to a generation of a workforce that is trained in multiple, complementary disciplines and that will open the door to new avenues of health and science research.
