The Robotics PhD degree is the first of it's kind in the Intermountain West and allows students to build upon qualified bachelor's or master’s degrees. The Robotic PhD degree will provide knowledge for integrating hardware and software with algorithms to create the next generation of intelligent machines.

Robotics researchers are employed in a wide range of occupations that are creating the next generation of technological devices. Roboticists create assistive robots (prosthetics, wearable robots), autonomous vehicles (cars, mining equipment, underwater, and aerial), automated warehouses, manufacturing systems, medical devices, and consumer products (vacuums, 3D printers, craft machines). Interdisciplinary skills, namely hardware (electrical, mechanical, and computational), programming, and algorithms, obtained by our Robotics degrees and certificates are important for a wide range of products that a company may wish to develop.
