    Multi-disciplinary in scope, the program provides an ideal foundation for what today’s experts in robotics and intelligent systems need to know — from artificial intelligence, computer vision, control systems, dynamics, and machine learning to design, programming and prototyping of robotic systems.

    The modern expert in robotics and intelligent systems must be proficient in artificial intelligence, computer vision, control systems, dynamics, machine learning, as well as the design, programming, and prototyping of robotic systems. Such subjects typically reside in different departments, and departmental programs do not offer the flexibility for cross-departmental training. The Robotics Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) program offers a more balanced and flexible academic curriculum that cuts across multiple departments.

    The Robotics M.S.E. requirements consist of a total of ten courses, including an optional thesis project. Students are required to take courses in at least three of the four foundational areas: Artificial Intelligence, Mechanism Design and Analysis, Perception and Control.

    Artificial Intelligence:

    • CIS 519 Introduction to Machine Learning
    • CIS 520 Machine Learning
    • CIS 521 Fundamentals of AI
    • ESE 650 Learning in Robotics

    Robot Design and Analysis:

    • MEAM 510 Design of Mechatronic Systems
    • MEAM 520 Introduction to Robotics
    • MEAM 620 Advanced Robotics


    • ESE 500 Linear Systems
    • ESE 505/MEAM 513 Control Systems Design


    • CIS 580 Machine Perception
    • CIS 581 Computer Vision & Computational Photography

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
