The Robotics Concentration
  • The Department of Computer Science at RPI offers an MS degree with specialization in Robotics.
  • Details about the program requirements can be found here

Why specialize in Robotics?
  • Unique combination of fundamental knowledge and cutting-edge technology
  • Excellent preparation for Phd studies
  • Increase your range of job opportunities

The main goal of Robotics
  • To create intelligent machines that are beneficial to society

The main intellectual challenge of Robotics
  • Understanding how to design and control robots to perform a wide range of useful tasks alone, in groups, or in collaboration with humans, and to do so in ways that are socially acceptable.

Useful background for Robotics research
  • The field of Robotics is so broad, that students with many different backgrounds can contribute to the field.
  • Assuming knowledge of the subject matter in the courses Robotic I and Robotics II, the subjects most useful in pursuing the goals of the CS Robotics Lab are (in no particular order): algorithms, scientific computing, software engineering, optimization and math programming, Bayesian filtering, multibody dynamics, machine learning, database systems, control theory, and signal processing.
