The Engineering Science MS with a course focus in Robotics is an interdisciplinary program that will train students in robotics and expand knowledge in automation, leading to employment opportunities in automated manufacturing or continued education at the doctoral level.
Areas of training in our courses include robotic integration, motion control development, electromechanical system design, device/sensor development, automation platforms, and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The job market demand for students with a background in robotics and related fields is expected to continue to grow at an increased rate for companies in search of students trained in this area. Faculty members associated with the Engineering Science MS (Robotics) Program actively work with students to help them secure positions upon completion of the program. Typically, a graduate degree is necessary for advancement in this field, and students completing UB's program have an opportunity to practice in industry and directly deploy skills acquired through the program.
We seek to admit students to our masters program with backgrounds or related coursework in electrical, mechanical, computer or any related engineering field, computer science, mathematics, physics or a related physical science field.
We are temporarily suspending the GRE requirement for admission to our Engineering Science MS (Robotics) Program for the Spring 2021 and Fall 2021 entry terms.
Students will take 10 courses for a total of 30 credits.
Our flexible packaged curriculum enables students to focus on the core competencies related to that align with their own personal training goals that align to meet the needs of preparing them for their careers.

Students will pick 2-3 electives; 2 electives if doing a 6-credit Master’s Thesis for the culminating experience and 3 courses if opting for the 3-credit Master’s Project.
Students will have the option to complete either a 6-credit master’s thesis or a 3-credit project. The project can be completed either through an internship or through supervision with a faculty member. If a student cannot secure a project or thesis, they can alternatively take an extra approved elective and complete the program via an all-course option.
