The M.S. in Computational Sciences and Robotics provides an interdisciplinary masters degree in an emerging technical area. Students in the program are required to take courses in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The primary objective of the CSR program is to give students a basic understanding of the mechanical, electrical and computing systems needed to participate in advanced mobile intelligent robotics applications.
The program covers the essentials of robotics, artificial intelligence, control, communications, sensors and signal processing. Students gain advanced knowledge in focus areas such as pattern recognition, computer vision, nonlinear control, digital signal processing, and communications. Upon graduation, the student will be able to participate in commercial, military and NASA projects to design and build intelligent autonomous systems capable of interacting with the environment and performing complex tasks.
