Robotics Engineering Minor

Description

Chair and Advisor: Justin Bradley (CSE)

Faculty: Detweiler (CSE), Duncan (CSE), Elbaum (CSE), Farritor (MME), Gilmore (ECE), Nelson (MME), Qiao (ECE), Terry (MME)

The robotics engineering minor is jointly administered by the Departments of:

  • Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE)
  • Computer Science and Engineering (CSE)
  • Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MME)

Requirements

This minor is available to all majors. Consult with your advisor before declaring this minor.

The robotics engineering minor consists of three core courses and three elective courses. When selecting electives, the student must take two courses outside of their major area of study. For example, a student in mechanical engineering might take an elective from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and one from the Department of Electrical Engineering.
