By joining the new Master’s in Robotics program at UC Riverside, students participate in interdisciplinary training involving robot design, embedded systems, control and navigation, and perception and artificial intelligence. The interdepartmental program is offered jointly by Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

The program is designed to provide an education covering both breadth and depth, exposing students to a core set of courses and then focusing on a single aspect of robotics to gain in-depth knowledge, including artificial intelligence and perception, control and navigation, embedded platforms and systems, and mechanical design and fabrication.
