Education Information

The University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering announced that it will offer a new master’s degree in robotics to meet the growing local and global workforce needs for robotics engineers and scientists in a wide range of industries, including medicine, manufacturing, transportation, environmental monitoring, and precision agriculture. Applications are now being accepted for the Fall 2020 enrollment.

According to the University website, the three-semester Master of Science (M.S.) in Robotics program will be offered by the new Minnesota Robotics Institute. The program will bring together the knowledge and expertise from more than 30 faculty in nine departments across five different University of Minnesota colleges in the areas relevant to robotics. Students will collaborate with faculty from several academic departments in computer science, electrical and computer engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, and many others.  It is claimed that the new program at the University of Minnesota is focused on real-world research and allows students to complete either a master's thesis or a capstone project in order to receive their degree.
