M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Robotics Track


M.S. in Mechanical Engineering, Robotics Track

A student may pursue an M.S. with a thesis or non-thesis option. The Robotics Track requires three core courses, plus three courses from restricted electives (see track courses for details). The minimum number of credits is 30. Besides the Robotics Track requirements, students must also satisfy certain requirements set by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, depending on the thesis or non-thesis option.

Example Program of Study for an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering, Robotics Track

Below is one possibility for a program of study that satisfies the thesis-option degree requirements. Non-thesis students would substitute additional courses for thesis credits in order to meet M.S. Non-Thesis degree requirements.
