Robotics is becoming more integrated into daily life as technology-driven environments evolve, particularly in the areas of mobility, manufacturing, agriculture, health care and supply chain management. It has been estimated that the industrial robotics market will expand nearly 12% annually to over $33 billion in the next decade, and skilled operators are needed to compensate for that growth. The M.S. program in robotics delivers critical industry-driven, hands-on learning content to students looking to join an emergent workforce of technologists and automation specialists.
Students can choose from three concentration tracks, each delivered by different departments within the college — industrial automation (engineering technology), intelligent control (electrical and computer engineering), and smart mobility (computer science).
