Overview

 This MS degree is built upon four foundational concepts in robotics: perception, cognition, control, and action. 

Roughly, these four capabilities comprise:

  •  1) obtaining data from the robot’s surroundings (perception);
  •  2) reasoning about how that data yields information about the robot’s environment (cognition); 
  • 3) mapping environmental information to a decision about how to react to the environment (control); and
  •  4) translating that reaction decision into movement and an interaction with the physical environment (action).

The  Robotics and Autonomy program from Drexel University  is an interdepartmental program in Drexel’s College of Engineering that educates and trains students in the theory, integration, and practical application of the core engineering and computer science disciplines that comprise robotics and autonomy. To be admitted, students must have a bachelor’s degree in a STEM field or demonstrate that they have acquired sufficient experience in a technical field to be able to satisfactorily complete engineering studies at the graduate level.

GRE admission requirements GRE® The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. It contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • Applicants must satisfy general requirements for graduate admission including a minimum 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) for the last two years of undergraduate studies, as well as for any subsequent graduate work, and hold a bachelor's degree in an engineering discipline from an accredited college or university. 

  • A degree in science (physics, mathematics, computer science, etc.) is also acceptable. Applicants with degrees in sciences may be required to take a number of undergraduate engineering courses. An undergraduate degree earned abroad must be deemed equivalent to a US bachelor's.

  • Full-time applicants must take the GRE exam. Students who do not hold a degree from a US institution must take the TOEFL or IELTS exam within two years of application submission.
