The robotics minor is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of robotic operation and preliminary training in design and use of robots. This minor is intended to equip the students with some fundamental knowledge and information on robotic manipulators, structures, systems and related applications. In particular, statics, kinematics, dynamics and control of robots will be covered in this minor. Robotic systems have wide application in modern technology and manufacturing. The students choosing this minor can also specialize, by completing special projects within the various courses, in certain aspects of intelligent robotics such as mobile walking robots, robotic vision, robotic surgery and surgical microrobots as well as the design and applications of robots for hazardous tasks and environments.
