MRSD Recommended Skill-Set
The MRSD program offers a broad exposure into most topics in the area of robotics. Program participants will come from many backgrounds and with different levels of experience / exposure to all the varied fields of engineering and science. As such, we wanted to provide an "ideal" list of all the skill-sets and areas that MRSD students will be exposed to and the associated science / engineering background that is recommended (but not required) for students to be able to handle all aspects of all the courses without concerns as to background and qualification. Note that this list provides a comprehensive list that paints the "ideal" picture. Students are encouraged to at least review the meaning of terminology and be comfortable with the essentials of the relative fields or skills. While it certainly would help, it is not a requirement to be proficient in each. We expect to at least have students be comfortable in areas and topics / skills not associated with their major, so they can take advantage of the multidisciplinary training and nature that is robotics and brought to students through the MRSD program.
A summary table of recommended skills and technology / engineering / scientific areas and / or principles, is shown below:
