CNET News recently interviewed Colin Angle, CEO of iRobot, about robotics as an emerging academic discipline, and a booming business. The article delves into great detail about WPI’s leadership position, stating that “When Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Mass., launched an undergraduate robotics-engineering department in 2006, it was big news. WPI is a top-notch engineering school, and the nascent program has been so successful, it added a master's degree track this year.” Angle spoke to iRobot’s recruiting goals, and also provided an insider’s perspective on the top 10 universities in the nation for young people who are looking to enter this exciting new field of study; WPI is among the schools listed.
