Robots are rapidly transforming the way we live and work, and will have even more revolutionary impact in the years ahead. Learn robotics fundamentals from the world renowned professors at the GRASP (General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception) Laboratory, one of the top robotics research centers in the world. In this Robotics MicroMasters program at University of Pennsylvania, you will learn the mathematical concepts and the programming tools to design, build and program robots that solve industry-relevant, real-world problems.
From self-driving cars to industrial robots working alongside humans, to robot swarms supporting search and rescue operations, this MicroMasters program will help you develop the critical thinking and technical skills necessary to generate new solutions to pressing problems.
In each course, you will face a series of week-long challenges based on state-of-the-art research currently underway at the GRASP Laboratory. Through these challenges, you will refine your understanding of core concepts and prove your abilities in the lucrative field of robotics.
This rigorous graduate-level series represents 30% of the coursework towards a Master of Science in Engineering degree in Robotics from Penn Engineering.
Founded in 1979, the GRASP Laboratory has historically been at the forefront of this rapidly evolving field. Our distinguished faculty are delighted to share with you over 30 years of interdisciplinary research and development, and educational innovation in the field of robotics.
