Master of Science in Robotics


The Master of Science in Robotics (MSROB) program is a multidisciplinary program with the following three concentrations, 1) MS in Robotics with Concentration in Mechanical Engineering, 2) MS in Robotics with Concentration in Electrical Engineering, and 3) MS in Robotics with Concentration in Computer Science. Each student will be required to take a total of 32 SHs of coursework that includes four core courses covering the fundamentals of robotics, and four elective courses from a variety of areas in both COE and CCIS, and across the university, to explore fundamental robotics disciplines and technical applications. A minimum GPA of 3.0 will be required for degree completion. MSROB graduates will be well positioned to get engineering or management jobs in the growing field of robotics or to progress into doctoral degrees in robotics or related areas.

Graduate students accepted into any of the concentration in MSROB can choose one of the three options: i) coursework only track (32 SH course work); ii) project track (28 SH course work plus 4 SH project); or iii) thesis track (24 SH course work plus 8 SH thesis). Students who want to pursue project or thesis options must find, within their first year of study, a faculty member or a research advisor who will be willing to direct and supervise a mutually agreed research project or MS thesis. Moreover, students who receive financial support from the university in the form of a research, teaching, or tuition assistantship must complete an 8-semester-hour (SHs) thesis.

Students enrolled in the program have the opportunity to also pursue one of the many engineering graduate certificate options in addition to or in combination with this program. Students should consult their faculty advisor regarding these options.
