The Undergraduate Minor in Robotics provides an opportunity for undergraduates at Carnegie Mellon to learn the principles and practice of robotics through theoretical studies and hands-on experience with robots. This minor serves as a focal point for undergraduates who are interested in robotics at Carnegie Mellon. The program is open to students in all colleges of the University.
Students initially learn the basics of robotics in an introductory robotics overview course. Additional required courses teach control systems and robotic manipulation. Students also choose from a wide selection of electives in robotics, perception and computer vision, cognition and cognitive science, or computer graphics. Students have a unique opportunity to undertake independent research projects, working under the guidance of Robotics Institute faculty members, an excellent introduction to robotics research for those considering graduate studies.
