WPI was one of the first universities in the nation to offer an online master’s program in Robotics. This popular program has since evolved and expanded, now offering both a full-length M.S. degree and two graduate certificates in Robotics Engineering online to students around the world.
WPI’s online Robotics Engineering graduate certificates give students a solid foundation in the fundamentals of robotics engineering and an awareness of the systems contexts within which robotic systems are engineered. These programs are a way to deepen your understanding and knowledge of robotics to either advance your career or start your journey to a master’s degree in this field.
Offered 100% online, our graduate certificates are a convenient way to advance your skills in robotics without pressing pause on your career. You’ll earn the same certificate as students on campus, from the comfort of your home or office.
Also available online robotics engineering master's degree. Interested in first earning your bachelor’s degree in Robotics Engineering? At WPI, we offer an innovative undergrad degree in robotics engineering that provides students the opportunity to build, interact, and explore the function of robots.
