This Masters program will provide students with in-depth theoretical knowledge along with practical experience in the development and control of robotic platforms and autonomous systems. Robotics and autonomous systems are interdisciplinary technologies that are poised to leave their mark on manufacturing, transportation, aerospace, defense, healthcare, and many other critical fields of application. Robots take many different forms, but can generally be described as physical systems capable of carrying out a set of complex tasks in their environment. Examples include autonomous cars, intelligent manufacturing robots, swarms of delivery drones, or even surgical robots. Within the last five years, these fields have seen tremendous growth and both industry and academia are in pressing need of qualified personnel with deep knowledge in machine learning, artificial intelligence, adaptive control, multi-agent systems, mechanical engineering, computer science, and a variety of other advanced topics.

About the Degree Program

The ASU Masters program in Robotics and Autonomous Systems will bring together students from various engineering backgrounds and allow them to take advantage of the broad variety of available courses and faculty on the topics of Robotics and Autonomous systems. Besides a number of core classes, students must select a concentration for a more focused study of one of the following specializations:  

  • Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
  • Systems Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Artificial Intelligence

Besides theoretical insights the MS program features hands-on classes and projects on the development and control of autonomous and semi-autonomous systems such as humanoids, robot swarms, manufacturing robots, autonomous cars, exoskeletons and many others. ASU features a number of world-class robotics labs with strong industry connections in which students can engage and further their studies.
