Johns Hopkins University’s broad interdisciplinary approach to robotics research makes it uniquely situated to offer such a comprehensive program. The Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR), with its reputation as one of the top robotics research sites in the world, particularly in the area of medical robotics, is pleased to offer this new MSE in Robotics.

The Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR) is one of the most technologically advanced robotics research centers worldwide, and is an international leader in the areas of medical robotics, autonomous systems, and bio-inspiration. Within Johns Hopkins, a premiere research university, the LCSR is a hub for innovative and interdisciplinary robotics engineering, research, and development. The LCSR brings a core group of scholars and students from the Whiting School of Engineering together with researchers from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and the Kennedy Krieger Institute to focus on the common purpose of creating knowledge and fostering innovation.

Program Goals
  • To provide students with multi-disciplinary engineering education and training that will enable them to develop and deploy innovative advanced robotics systems that function effectively in real-world applications.
  • To develop students’ ability to relate individual technical and design elements to the functioning of complete engineered robotic systems.
  • To develop students’ ability to work effectively within and to lead multi-disciplinary teams.
  • To provide students with a basis for life-long learning and professional growth.

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.


Program requirements

Proficiency in undergraduate mathematics and physics is expected for all MSE students in the robotics program. This will include the following:Multivariable integral and differential calculusLinear algebraOrdinary differential equationsPhysics – undergraduate calculus-based mechanics, electricity, and magnetism.Probability and statisticsComputing Proficiency PrerequisitesProficiency in computer programming is expected for all MSE students in the robotics program. This will include the following:Basic numerical methods using existing programming environments.The ability to write well-structured and documented programs in a standard programming language such as C++, Java, or MATLAB.Application RequirementsBachelor’s degree in engineering, science, or math. [Or demonstrated knowledge or accomplishment in these fields]Graduate ApplicationStatement of Purpose – in your statement of purpose please take a couple of sentences to explain/answer the following:Why are you interested in doing an MSE in Robotics? No need to over-think this: it is fine if it is as simple as wanting to get a job in this field!Are you interested in a specific Robotics Track? See Robotics MSE website for more information on tracks.TranscriptGraduate Record Examination (GRE). Current JHU students may request that this requirement be waived. Such requests will be judged on a case-by-case basis.TOEFL or IELTS for international applicants.Three letters of reference$75.00 Application feeFor non-USA academic work, JHU Graduate Admissions strongly recommends you submit a professional evaluation from one of the recommended resources (more information here). At this time, however, LCSR does not require the evaluation for the Robotics MSE application package. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 TOEFL paper-based test score : 600 TOEFL iBT® test: 100
