The Master of Engineering program in robotics is designed to meet the educational needs of engineering professionals currently working in or wishing to enter the fast-growing field of robotics and autonomous systems. Our program curriculum is designed to provide students with interdisciplinary knowledge and understanding of different aspects of robotics including design, modeling, control of robotic systems, planning and perception for autonomous robots, robot learning, and human-robot interaction. Students are able to tailor coursework towards their area of interest in robotics and choose technical electives in artificial intelligence, computer vision and perception, space and planetary robotics, robot kinematics and dynamics, control, networked robotic systems, robotics at micro and Nano scale, and rehabilitation robotics.

Maryland Robotics Center

An interdisciplinary research center housed in the Institute for Systems Research. The mission of the center is to advance robotic systems, underlying component technologies, and applications of robotics through research and educational programs that are interdisciplinary in nature and based on a systems approach. The center's research activities include all aspects of robotics including development of component technologies (e.g., sensors, actuators, structures, and communication), novel robotic platforms, and intelligence and autonomy for robotic systems. Research projects in the center are supported by the major federal funding agencies including NSF, ARO, ARL, ONR, AFOSR, NIH, DARPA, NASA, and NIST.
