The Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University has announced the launch of an advanced graduation program for professionals with multifarious skills who can either be newcomers with a basic degree in engineering, computer science, physical science, applied mathematics or those with one to three years of experience in the field of robotics and automation
This program will commence by the end of 2011 On successful completion of this degree, graduates will be able to hold top positions either in companies dealing with robotics or in the entrepreneurial world.
The Director of Master's degree in Robotic Systems Development (MRSD), Hagen Schempf said that managerial skills are equally important as technical knowledge and by incorporating both skills, students can successfully head teams to make a prominent contribution in the area of both robotics and automation to their companies He also added that robotic technology features electrical, mechanical and software concepts, thereby making the field so robust so as to handle various advanced automated commercial systems.
MRSD provides course-level instruction in the main technology areas of robotics, practical project courses and colloquium-style business and management courses. It also features an on-campus two-semester full-time course and a seven month internship with a recognized industrial associate dealing with robotics or automation.
