Robotics at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
A Multidisciplinary Minor
Due to the success of programs such as FIRST, VEX and Botball, many students have had experience with robots and know how fun and cool they can be. However, did you know that robots are also great for making connections between computing, engineering, science, and mathematics? Working with robots gives you a broader understanding of your chosen major while providing exposure to other disciplines. It also helps you understand how to work on multidisciplinary teams, and increases your marketability upon graduation.
There are many types of robots including humanoid, mobile, industrial, surgical, social, house hold and many more. Robots are mechanical and/or biological systems with electrical controls and sensors given intelligence through software. Thus, the design, construction and programming of robots require the collaboration of Biomedical, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical, Software Engineers, Computer Scientists, as well as others.
