The Convergence Innovation Competition (CIC) is a unique competition open to all Georgia Tech students and is run in both the Fall and Spring semesters. Each year the categories in the CIC are defined by our Industry partners who provide mentorship, judging, and category-specific resources which are often available exclusively to CIC competitors. While the competition is not tied to any specific course, competitors are often able to take advantage of class partnerships where lecture and lab content, guest lectures, and projects are aligned with competition categories.
Connected living is a fast-growing intersection of mobile, wearable, home, community, car and other technologies to assist individuals in accomplishing more seamless interactions and goals in daily life. The Aware Home is the perfect environment for exploring how smart-home systems may be advanced in the future. Student design projects are an opportunity for students to research the preferences of the end users and design prototype systems that will inform this future.
