Robotics and Automation

Minor Adviser: A Minai

Robotics and Automation focuses on developing new sensors and controls to achieve a higher level of performance from electro-mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, and hybrid robotics devices. Advanced hybrid hardware-software systems now make it possible to design elegant and sophisticated devices whose capabilities far surpass purely mechanical systems.

Each student must take 6 courses and up to 21-credits hours from the listed courses below:


  • Senior Project I--related to robotics and automation (3 cr)
  • Select from EECE 5001, EECE 5031, ELTN 4011, BME 5001C, AEEM 5012C, AEEM 5013, AEEM 5014C, MECH 5051, MET 5090


  • Senior Project II--related to robotics and automation (3 cr)
