Robotics Graduate Major (MENG, MS, PhD)
Graduate Areas of Concentration
Assistive robots, autonomous robots, human-robot interaction, legged locomotion, manipulation, mobile robots, multi-robot coordination
The interdisciplinary robotics program offers Master of Engineering (MEng), Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in Robotics.
MS degree candidates may pursue thesis or nonthesis options. A coursework-only MEng degree may only be pursued with special permission from a Robotics faculty member. The PhD program prepares students for careers in industry, research laboratories or universities. Students are encouraged to develop programs of study in close cooperation with the faculty members in their areas of interest.
The program includes core areas of robotics, including actuation, locomotion, manipulation, dynamics, control, sensing, artificial intelligence, and human/robot interactions.
Additional information concerning courses, advising procedures, faculty, and many other aspects of the program may be found in the programs’ website.
