Master of Science in Human-Robot Interaction
The official policies for this program may be found in the CS Department Bulletin. If there is any conflict between this webpage and the official policies, then the official policies have precedence.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers students in Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) a course-based, one-year MS program. This requires students to complete 30 semester-hour units (SHUs) of courses, including five core HRI courses and five additional courses.
The degree will stipulate "non-thesis." The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering does not offer a thesis option in HRI. Advising of Electrical and Computer Engineering HRI students will be handled by a designated faculty or staff member formally affiliated with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
The 15 remaining SHUs must fulfill the following requirements. At least three of the five required electives must be taken from a list of approved Electrical and Computer Engineering electives. Each remaining elective must be a 100-level or 200-level course from one of the following departments:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Civil and Environmental Engineering
- Chemical and Biological Engineering
- Computer Science
- Mechanical Engineering
- Physics and Astronomy
Only courses listed with 3 or more SHUs can count as electives. Please consult the program website for details concerning acceptable courses for fulfilling these requirements.
