Robotics Engineering

College Robotics

Built with Future Robotics Professionals in Mind

Whether the goal is to relieve human workers of exhausting and repetitive tasks, increase productivity and efficiency, or take people out of harm’s way, robotics today plays an integral role in all aspects of manufacturing, medicine, and more. And it will take on even greater importance in the future.

In fact, the demand for qualified robotics engineers is poised to grow by as much as 13 percent through 2018 (US Bureau of Labor Statistics). As the first university in the nation to offer a bachelor's degree program in Robotics Engineering--and first to offer MS and PhD degrees--WPI is committed to providing hands-on, practical education to tomorrow’s robotics engineers.
