The GRASP Lab at the University of Pennsylvania invites applications for the
second class for the Masters of Science and Engineering in Robotics.  The
academic mission of this exciting program is the education of next
generation engineers in the interdisciplinary science and technology of
robotic and intelligent machines. 

This multi-departmental, multi-disciplinary program provides an ideal
preparation for industrial jobs in robotics, defense, aerospace, medical
device, and automotive industries as well as various government agencies. In
addition, it provides an excellent foundation for doctoral studies in
robotics and related fields.

Some features of the M.S.E. in Robotics program include:  
* 	Balanced curriculum with courses from Computer and Information
Science (CIS), Electrical and Systems Engineering (ESE), Mechanical
Engineering and Applied	Mechanics (MEAM), and related areas.

*	Course advising, teaching, and optional MSE thesis supervision by
world-renowned faculty.

*	Access to state-of-the-art experimental facilities.  
*	Opportunities for research projects in robotics and related fields 
	in the GRASP Lab.  

*	Participation in exciting robot competitions such as the Robocup
  	soccer tournament, DARPA Urban Challenge.  

* 	Attendance of weekly GRASP seminars and participation in GRASP 
	social events  
*	Professional networking with peers in industry and academia  

We would greatly appreciate encouraging students in your institution or
organization that are broadly interested in robotics and intelligent
machines to consider this program.  More details regarding the curriculum,
the application process, and deadlines, can be found at the GRASP website
