I thought their were only 3 schools in the nation that offered majors in robotics: CalTech, CMU, and MIT, guess I was wrong, are theyre any schools on the east coast that offer them?
Would it be possible to get the degree solely by online coursework? Or do you need to be there?I am attending National University for my comp sci degree, and its completely online. (they do offer classroom sessions too)
Not a question, but thought you might be interested to know that we just shipped a stereo vision system (Surveyor SVS) to WPI ECE department - Prof Looft. It should arrive early next week.
Why are all the robotics school on the east coast SadAlthough I hear UCLA has a robot program?
QuoteI thought their were only 3 schools in the nation that offered majors in robotics: CalTech, CMU, and MIT, guess I was wrong, are theyre any schools on the east coast that offer them?These schools all have robotics programs - for GRADUATE students. They also all have robotics undergraduate classes, but tend to focus towards a particular field. Robotics Engineering at WPI is built from the ground up to give more breadth in all three fields, while receiving additional training in robotics oriented concepts.
The courses are ridiculously lab intensive. You have a single week to complete a lab, and I'll be damned if you don't need more than that week to accomplish the goal. This isn't to say that the labs are impossible- they are designed from the ground up to challenge the student and truly push your potential. I've learned more through hands on labs than any class, and it really does back up the theory taught in class. Then again, all of WPI is based on project based work supporting theory throughout every major engineering course.
what is the answer to life, the universe and everything ?
CalTech, CMU, and MIT do not offer a major in robotics. CMU offers a minor in robotics, and also a masters and PhD. CMU allows undergrads to take most of the grad level robotics courses, given you have the prereqs.CMU doesn't offer a major for two reasons:robotics is too specialized, and will only result in people graduating without any jobs in the market waiting for themno faculty at CMU is willing to take time away from research to set up a robotics major(its been a big discussion at CMU for a decade now)
OK, I'll make you a question as far as I see you can reply to many...I'm a graduate student here in Greece in the major of physics and I'm strongly interested in robotics,electronics and such....My economic situation prohibits me of being able to pay university and leaving in a foreign country simultaneously!What are my chances that I attract the interest of your university to get accepted to it... And if possible cover some of my basic needs???It's not that I don't like my major, it's that I'm more interested in robotics....... Although physics cover it all....Hope you can reply as soon as possibleBest Regards, LefterisGreece

QuoteMy economic situation prohibits me of being able to pay university and leaving in a foreign country simultaneously!What are my chances that I attract the interest of your university to get accepted to it... And if possible cover some of my basic needs???I took out like $40k in loans, got another ~$40k in need based (poor hobo) grants, $20k from family, and worked 10 hours/week (the maximum CMU allows you to work) to pay for living expenses. No free ride, but worth every penny spent/borrowed Education is the best investment you can ever make Half Shell, I think CMU is watching the WPI experiment. If most of the graduates come out with robotics jobs, CMU will quickly follow suit (evidence fixes non-believers).
Hi i am new to robotics and i am wondering what a microcontoller is and what does it do?
heh, you couldn't answer that one
The Fifth Year Masters Program provides Carnegie Mellon undergraduates an alternative admission process to the existing Masters program in Robotics in which admitted undergraduates may complete their Masters Degree in their "fifth year". This quicker path to admission allows Carnegie Mellon students to better utilize their undergraduate years to make inroads toward completing the Masters degree in Robotics. As with the regular admission process, the high standards for admissions to the MS Program in Robotics include strong evidence of research potential based on close interaction with one or more faculty members - whether in projects, summer jobs, or advanced classes. If admitted to this program, undergraduates then become involved with research that broadens their undergraduate experience.
