Centers & Labs

Georgia Tech has almost 400,000 square feet of space and state-of-the-art core facilities for manufacturing research:

Additive Manufacturing

Using innovative direct digital manufacturing to improve cost structure and delivery lead-time in creating mechanical parts and electronic devices.

System Informatics and Control

Anchored on the effective and seamless integration of physical and analytical models with empirical, data-driven methodologies, System Informatics and Control (SIAC) aims to provide a new scientific base for the design, analysis, and control of complex manufacturing and service systems.

The SIAC group brings together researchers with diverse backgrounds related to manufacturing and service systems, quality and reliability engineering, diagnostics and prognostics, industrial statistics and data mining, and automation and control.

Extreme Tribology & Diagnostics

Studying the physical interaction between contacting surfaces when one surface if moving at a relatively high speed in relation to the other surface.

Factory Information Systems

Developing, testing, and launching innovative software and technology that boosts manufacturing efficiency.

Model-based Systems Engineering

Applying software and electronics innovations to create analytic models that predict system performance, optimize system parameters, and create knowledge repositories for future systems development.

Precision Machining

Researching and applying technologies for enhanced productivity, part quality, difficult-to-machine features, and machine tool utilization of precision finishing processes.

Supply Chain and Logistics

A supply chain is a set of organizations that work together to design, produce, and deliver a product or service to a market, beginning with procurement of raw materials and ending with distribution of finished products or services to end-users or consumers.

Sustainable Design and Manufacturing

Developing materials, processes, and systems for implementing and operationalizing sustainability.

Ultra-lightweight, Energy Efficient Materials and Structures

Using rigorous experimental and modeling R & D to advance and mature technology in aerospace, biomedical, defense, energy, and industrial equipment.
