Full admission as a degree seeking student requires the following prerequisites:
- A bachelor's degree, GPA of 3.0 or better, in engineering; Aerospace, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Industrial, and Mechanical from an accredited institution.
- Courses in mathematics (Calculus I, II, III, & Differential Equations) are required to be considered for admission.
- Three letters of recommendation for the Master's degree.
For Master of Engineering students there are four prescribed areas of concentration within the Robotics curriculum. In consultation with the academic advisor, students should choose electives from these areas to make a well-structured academic program. Please note that special topics courses may also be available in some semesters and students should talk to their academic advisor if interested in one of these new courses.

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.
