Success of WPI's Robotics Program Inspires Other Universities
The success of the nation’s first undergrad robotics engineering program has inspired at least two universities that are now experiencing the very same challenges.
Six years ago, Worcester, MA-based Worcester Polytechnic Institute's (WPI's) new robotics initiative had no students, one class, and one faculty member. Today it's accredited by ABET, offers a BS degree as well as an MS and Ph.D., and has 50 graduate students, 240 undergrads, 11 faculty, 17 courses, and 11 labs.
