Master of Science in Robotics

The MS in Robotics will be an interdisciplinary program offered collaboratively by six schools in the Colleges of Computing, Engineering and Sciences:

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Interactive Computing
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Physics

Students may apply to enter the program through any one of the participating units, the choice of which usually reflects that student's intended area of specialization and general background. Students with diverse and eclectic backgrounds are encouraged to apply, including those with previous work experience.
