About

The Robotics Engineering program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute is a leading, first-of-its-kind graduate degree in the nation and an internationally lauded academic program. And for all the serious research that goes on here, we encourage imaginative and creative work with robots.

Overview

Key Features

On a campus located in the heart of New England’s robotics industry, you’ll work on innovative robotics projects from the get-go alongside influential and renowned faculty in our state-of-the-art labs. That's part of what makes the Robotics Engineering program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute so different.

The open and collaborative atmosphere allows idea sharing with fellow researchers, students, and faculty and fosters a community that’s involved and passionate as they work on breakthrough discoveries in medical and assistive robots, robot motion planning, human-robot interaction, and more.

With some of the most widely respected faculty in the nation and advanced robotics courses, graduate students turn theory into practice as they make robots, create software to operate them, understand how robots communicate, and study the ethical implications of using robots in a human world.

Programme Structure

  • The foundation of robotics course work is supplemented by forward-thinking engineering course options in project management or entrepreneurship and innovation. You’ll have the freedom to design your own capstone work or thesis in whatever area interests you the most, and you’ll work closely with faculty to make sure it advances your study.
