BACHELOR OF SCIENCE
ROBOTICS AND EMBEDDED SYSTEMS DEGREE
Master the Engineering of Robotic Systems
The world we interact in everyday and the technology that we utilize are built
upon the foundation of embedded systems. The Robotics and Embedded Systems major
provides students the engineering foundation for the design, implementation and
analysis of embedded systems, with an emphasis in autonomous robotic systems.
Building upon the foundation of software engineering, a degree in Robotics and
Embedded Systems can span mechanical design, controls, electronics, digital
logic design, embedded programming, machine vision, and adaptive algorithm
development and design of autonomous robotic systems.

Robotics and Embedded Systems Degree Objectives (BS)
Implement a simple microprocessor using digital logic design.
Describe and apply the mathematical and theoretical basis of computer science
and computer architectures.
Describe, implement and analyze fundamental data structures including lists,
trees, hash tables, graphs, and algorithms including sorting and searching.
Apply knowledge of transducers, actuators, and simultaneous hardware and
software development in the design of an embedded system.
Design and analyze real-time embedded systems, including advanced digital logic
design, signal processing and high-speed digital systems.
Program Areas of Emphasis
Embedded Systems: Digital Hardware Design and Software (Programming).
Electronic Design: Digital and Analog circuit design and analysis.
Autonomous Systems: Small, mobile platforms.
Students entering the Robotics and Embedded Systmes Program should focus on math and science.
The more math students have before entering the Robotics and Embedded Systems Program the more
they will be able to explore this degree in depth.
