Robotic engineering is highly in demand in the various industries and it is hard to overlook the fact that the US is the land of top institutes of robotics engineering. It leaves behind the Europe and rest of the world due to its profound research combined with state of the art facilities.
Robots have penetrated into our daily life so immensely and so deeply that we must salute to those who invest their genius minds into creating them after knowing that we need robots to perform such tasks which are nearly impossible for a human. And all these masterminds belong to the institutes which I have outlined below for those who are seeking their career in the field of robotics.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology is regarded one of the top institutes among the robotic engineering prospective students in the United States. It is located in the Cambridge, Massachusetts. The engineering school offers multiple degree programs in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Aeronautics and Astronautics, Computational and Systems Biology etc.
It believes our engineering students cannot be boxed in to a single, narrow domain of knowledge.
Carnegie Mellon University
Based in the Pittsburgh the Carnegie Mellon University was founded more than 100 years ago. The university is ranked 43rd among the top universities of the world by US News & World Report, and enjoys the 21st rank among the world’s premier universities given by Times Higher Education.
Its Robotics Institute offers MS degree in Robotics in which students can spend their first year of study at a partnering institute in UK or China and for the final year they return to the main campus. RI also offers PhD degrees in Robotics and MS in Robotic System Development.
University of Pennsylvania
US News and World Report ranks this unique university number five in its Best Colleges list of 2011. Through the administration of General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Laboratory, students are offered MSE (Master of Science in Engineering) in Robotics in the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
Indiana State University
Regarded as one of the oldest universities in the state it has been named one of the Best in the Midwest by Princeton Review.
In the College of Technology, the university offers multiple degrees on undergraduate and graduate level in the disciplines of Aviation, Applied Engineering, Electronics, and Computer Engineering. All of these programs can either automation or robotics.
University of Texas
University of Texas at Austin is a research based university that has more than 7500 students enrolled in its Cockrell School of Engineering which has departments of Aerospace Engineering & Engineering Mechanics, Electrical and Computer Engineering and so on.
It offers almost a total of 21 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the school of engineering.
Academic Ranking of World Universities has ranked the college sixth in the world, and US News and World Report ranks it eighth nationally.
