The robotics minor is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of robotic operation and preliminary training in the design and use of robots. This minor is intended to equip students with  fundamental knowledge and information on robotic manipulators, structures, systems and related applications. Specifically, this minor will cover statics, kinematics, dynamics and control of robots. Robotic systems have wide applications in modern technology and manufacturing. Students  who choose 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.

Core Courses: (9 credit hours)

All the 9 credits should not be from the same course discipline.
