You’ve always wanted to be on the cutting edge.
This program is to educate students to build and design real-world automation systems, following a systems approach by integrating electromechanics, existing microcontrollers, and software. It provides students with both theoretical background and practical hands-on experiential learning, preparing them to become innovators, entrepreneurs, and connectors in a dynamic and complex field where teamwork is treasured. The program also connects computer science, electromechanics, and robotics with artistic design and interactive performance.
Students will learn to understand, design, program, build and control a wide range of robots and other autonomous systems. This integrated program provides a holistic introduction to the world of Robotics, beginning with the underlying electromechanical principles, manufacturing fundamentals and introductory programming. Students will continue to master a variety of control units and learn to design and build custom solutions from scratch. During the buffet-style program core, students choose which robotic applications they wish to explore in depth. Finally a real-world capstone project facilitates the transition to gainful employment in industry.
