The robotics master of science program brings together areas of robotics research that would otherwise be spread across different departments or separate universities, preparing students to take a leading role in the research and development of future generations of integrated robotics technologies and systems. Requirements for the degree include course work and speaking and writing qualifiers. The MS also requires an oral presentation regarding the supervised research.
Masters students can typically complete the program in twelve months of full-time, self-funded study or, if financial assistance is available, two years of study while working as a research assistant. Throughout the program, students split their time between research and course work. Students are involved in every aspect of research - from initial problem formulation to the final publication of results. Research is conducted in the laboratories of the Robotics Institute under the supervision of faculty advisers and in collaboration with student colleagues.
