Master of Engineering in Robotics, Control and Smart Systems (RCSS)

The Master of Engineering in Robotics, Control and Smart Systems provides academic excellence through an interdisciplinary education in the fields with aim to prepare graduate students for careers in industry, education and research (local, regional and global).

Program Objectives:


The Master of Engineering in Robotics, Control and Smart Systems graduates engineers who :

  1. Have broad foundation in both the theoretical and the practical skills of RCSS interdisciplinary knowledge space,
  2. Integrate fundamental and advanced knowledge to solve complex interdisciplinary problems in the field of RCSS,
  3. Work independently as well as collaboratively within interdisciplinary teams and prepared to be team leaders,
  4. Demonstrate competitive professional advancement, and engage in advanced academic and research in areas of their interest within industry, research centers, and academia both in local and global environment.

Admissions


A bachelor’s degree in engineering, with minimum GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0 in major area is required as a basic requirement or admissions into the RCSS master’s program. Admission is also subject to the general university requirements for graduate programs. For those students whose grade records indicate promising ability, but who otherwise are not have adequate preparation in sciences or engineering, admission may be granted under the requirement that remedial courses will be taken.
