Well-Rounded Education Provides a Solid Foundation
The reality for tomorrow’s robotics engineers is that they will need a foundation that expands into other key disciplines. That’s why faculty members from WPI’s Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, and Electrical & Computer Engineering departments provide support that allows Robotics Engineering students to explore areas such as:
- Artificial intelligence
- Computer vision
- Natural language and speech understanding
- Wireless networking
Our MS and PhD programs stress a well-rounded education through diverse courses in a variety of areas that are critical to engineering professionals. Students graduating from the Robotics Engineering program will have many options for future employment across a wide range of industries that includes national defense, elder care, manufacturing, and interactive entertainment.
Students must have an undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or related field from an accredited university consistent with the WPI graduate catalog. Admission is also open to qualified WPI students who opt for the combined BS/MS program, with the undergraduate major in Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Robotics Engineering, or a related field.
