Doctor of Philosophy with a Major in Robotics

Students pursuing a PhD in Robotics must take 36 semester hours of core research and elective courses, pass a comprehensive qualifying exam with written and oral components, and successfully complete, document, and defend a piece of original research culminating in a doctoral thesis. Students select a home school, such as ECE, AE, ME, or IC, and apply for admission to the PhD program in robotics through that home school.
