Dataquest Magazine has named Colorado School of Mines one of the top five universities worldwide for robotics research.
Also on the list of “engineering courses and colleges that are changing the landscape of robotics education” were Carnegie Mellon University, MIT, University of Pennsylvania and University of Michigan-Ann Arbor.
Mines was recognized as the home of the Center for Automation, Robotics, and Distributed Intelligence (CARDI), “a great place to meet other robot enthusiasts, learn how to build robots and undertake research on the subject,” Dataquest wrote.
Students at Mines can pursue robotics through a number of paths, including the newly launched interdisciplinary graduate certificate, M.S. and PhD in robotics. Undergraduates can also focus on robotics and automation as part of their Bachelor of Science studies in mechanical engineering and computer science.
