The Master of Science in Robotics and Autonomous Systems (MSRAS) offers the skills necessary to analyze, design and develop emerging robotic and autonomous platforms that are increasingly becoming part of human society. These platforms embody technologies and concepts from multiple disciplines spanning electrical and electronic hardware, autonomous control, computer vision, machine learning, manipulation, mechatronics, autonomous vehicles, and medical robotics. The MS degree is a 30-credit hour graduate program that offers a thesis option. Thesis students can replace 6 credit hours of technical electives with thesis credits. There are 4 required courses of 3 hours each from Perception, Cognition, Action, and Hardware areas (thus totaling 12 credit hours). The remaining 6 additional courses (18 credit hours) must be selected from a list of restricted electives, each of which is 3 credit hours. No thesis is required, but one can be completed and will count for 6 credit hours of restricted electives.
