Welcome

The Mines Robotics graduate program is an interdisciplinary program that unites faculty, coursework and research opportunities from the departments of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering and the division of Engineering, Design, and Society, creating an educational experience that accurately reflects the inherently interdisciplinary and systems-oriented nature of the field of robotics. The program features a core curriculum focused on four robotics focus areas, while also giving students flexibility to choose electives to develop their depth of expertise. Graduates have the cutting-edge skills needed for robotics careers in either research or industry.
