Truly interdisciplinary, robotics combines computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and many other STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math)-related disciplines. UMass Lowell’s Robotics minor allows students majoring in engineering, computer science, or another science to get the education they need to work in this exciting, ever-evolving field. (Students from other colleges can take the Robotics minor, but will have to take additional courses to satisfy prerequisites.)
To enroll in the minor, fill out a Declaration of Major/Minor/Second Major or Change of Major form and bring it to your department chair or to one of the Robotics minor coordinators (Fred Martin and Holly Yanco in Computer Science; Ioannis Raptis in Mechanical Engineering).
The minor in Robotics consists of 24 credits. Courses that are part of the minor, including its elective, may also be counted towards your major.
Required Courses (21 credits)
1COMP.1010 Computing I - for CS majors; EECE.2160 Application Programming - for ECE majors; other majors can take either course to satisfy the programming requirement.
Elective Courses (3 credits)
