The Virginia Center for Autonomous Systems aims to recruit the highest caliber graduate and postdoctoral research assistants and to challenge them with an advanced curriculum and exciting research in the area of autonomous systems. The result will be top-caliber graduates who will guide the technology’s future development. VaCAS does not award degrees or admit graduate students directly; the student must apply and earn his or her degree through an individual department of the Virginia Tech Graduate School.
Postdoctoral researchers, however, do not need to apply to VaCAS through the Graduate School.
If you have followed these procedures and would like to find out more about joining this new and exciting center at Virginia Tech, please contact the director. There is no specific VaCAS application form at this time.
