MS in Robotics Engineering with Autonomous Vehicles (AV) Specialization

After completing this program, the student is prepared to:

  • Describe a complete systems architecture of an AV that can operate in real world environments
  • Build a data description of the environment from sensor data fusion
  • Construct a deep learning based, short time, self-driving system which provides real-time control from perceptual data and physical constraints.
  • Build a heterogeneous sensor fusion solution for largescale navigation.
  • Evaluate challenging problems in conventional control and their impact when applied to autonomous vehicles


  • RBE 500. Foundations of Robotics
  • RBE 501. Robot Dynamics*
  • RBE 502. Robot Control*
    *Requires RBE 500.
