Dear Colleagues,
The University of Maryland has created a new interdisciplinary Master’s
degree and Graduate Certificate in Engineering in Robotics to meet the
demand for highly trained technologists.  It is designed to give students
the in-depth knowledge, skills, and abilities to advance robotics in
defense, health care, manufacturing, and exploration (i.e. space, extreme
Developed by faculty from the Maryland Robotics Center
(www.robotics.umd.edu), the curriculum covers fundamental and applied topics
in robotics modeling, control of robotic systems, planning and perception
for autonomous robots.  Students will tailor their programs to suit their
needs in a variety of areas including optimization and algorithms,
performance analysis and design methods, vision and perception, and
modeling, systems and control.
The advent of this program comes at a time when practicing scientists and
engineers are needed in the rapidly developing robotics field. Students
within the program will receive instruction from the University’s foremost
scientists in developing fields within robotics, as well as from experts
from the public and private sectors. Learn more at
Best regards,
