You don’t have to major in Robotics Engineering at WPI to experience this world-class engineering department. A Robotics Engineering minor gives you an overview of the degrees and you’ll have access to robots—working with them, designing them, manipulating them, and learning how they may be used in human society.
Many majors where robotics are featured prominently in some way would benefit from a Robotics Engineering minor; these include Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Computer Science, to name just a few.
The Robotics Engineering minor blends electrical and computer engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, engineering science, and robotics engineering courses.
Some of the courses you might take include Object-Oriented Design Concepts, Algorithms, Digital Circuit Design, Continuous-Time Signals and Systems Analysis, Introduction to Robotics, Unified Robotics I: Actuation, Unified Robotics II: Sensing, and a robotics capstone experience.
Students interested in a Robotics Engineering minor should consult with their faculty advisor and then email the approval form to the Chair of the Robotics Engineering Undergraduate Program Committee, Greg Lewin.
