Center for Assistive Technology & Environmental Access

Focusing on Abilities Not ‘Disabilities’

We believe in possibilities and seek to minimize limitations through applied research and the development of assistive and universally designed technologies.


We are a part of the Georgia Tech College of Design’s largest research and service center, the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation.

We’re currently working on a new, unified website.
In the meantime, you can find the research/service information about CATEA on this website.
