Through the Robotics Engineering program at the University of Hartford, you can gain skills in the growing field of robotics and make an impact on the future.
About the Major
This program will prepare you to fulfill the growing and expected demands for entry-level careers in robotics. Dive into a hands-on experience around robotics principals, designs, and operation. Students in this program will especially benefit from the laboratories in CETA, including two new robotics labs.
Robotics is the discipline that combines computer, electrical, mechanical, sensing, and computer science in real-time. It plays a role in nearly every aspect of our lives, and we can see its applications in automation, manufacturing, the defense industry, commerce—like Amazon—and the healthcare industry to mention a few.
Since this program covers various aspects of engineering, students in this program will receive more of a well-rounded educational experience. Learn more about various topics as follows (but not limited to):
Circuit Design, Digital Devices, Micro-controller, Signal Processing, Control Systems, Communication
2D/3D Modeling, Manufacturing, Kinematics/Statics, Dynamics, Mechatronics
Programming, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision
CETA Robotics Club
Faculty Co-Advisors: Kiwon Sohn and Akin Tatoglu
UHART Robotics Club works on various ongoing projects in the field of robotics, artificial intelligence and real-time control systems (such as humanoids, mobile robots, industrial robots, service robots, and drones). Members of this organization also participate in the following research groups:
Autonomous Mobile Robotics Research Group, led by Akin Tatoglu
Assistive Robot Team, led by Kiwon Sohn
Every year, more than 50 students from multiple majors (Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Computer Science) work in the team. They range from first-year to graduate students.
