Undergraduate students can save time and earn a combined BS/MS in Robotics Engineering in just five years.
Robotics Engineering students at WPI do much more than actually study robots—they build them, interact with them, explore their design and function, and push them to their limits. As the first university in the nation to offer an undergraduate degree in Robotics Engineering and one of the first to offer graduate degrees in Robotics Engineering, our program is built with aspiring robotics professionals in mind. Only at WPI will you find this hands-on approach that combines expert knowledge with real-world applications.
If you’re already a student in FIRST, you’re in good company—and you may also be eligible to apply for one or more WPI scholarships. WPI faculty and students designed and wrote WPILib, the FRC Control System software used by all of the nearly 1,700 FIRST teams.
At WPI, you won’t just learn about robots in a classroom. You’ll design robots, control their behavior, and understand their use as you study the core disciplines of Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. Complementary coursework in social implications and entrepreneurship provide the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
Through your project work, you’ll learn how to put your classroom knowledge to work. By the time you graduate, you will have been constructing and operating robots for years, and you’ll understand how to apply that experience to solve real-world problems.
