Admissions and Funding


We are now accepting Robotics Program applications for Fall 2017. The PhD application deadline is December 15, 2016 and the MS application deadline is January 15, 2017.

Detailed information on applying to the Robotics Program is available from the webpage Robotics Admission Information.

Any student who wishes to be considered by both the Robotics Program and a traditional department  (e.g. Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Naval Architecture) must submit separate applications to both programs.

If you have questions please contact the Graduate Coordinator, Sarah Sobek,


All PhD admissions come with guaranteed funding subject to a student meeting their program deadlines. Funding includes tuition, monthly stipend, and health insurance. This funding can take the form of fellowships, research assistantships (typically to support research with specific faculty members), or teaching assistantships.

Masters students are eligible for the same sources of funding as PhD students, however funding is not guaranteed.
