The GRASP Laboratory incorporates a small, selective, and rigorous robotics program for graduate and doctoral students that boasts an invigorating, research-focused environment within a distinguished, Ivy League university system. GRASP students work and learn within a dynamic intellectual setting founded on the strength of its academic programs and led by an expert faculty determined to usher in the next generation of robotics scholars.

PhD Curriculum

Students conducting doctoral research at the GRASP Laboratory obtain their PhD degree at any of the associated departments. Depending on their main interest, PhD applicants should apply to the CIS, ESE, or MEAM department.

Master’s Degree Program

The modern expert in robotics and intelligent systems must be proficient in artificial intelligence, computer vision, control systems, dynamics, machine learning, as well as the design, programming, and prototyping of robotic systems. Such subjects typically reside in different departments, and departmental programs do not offer the flexibility for cross-departmental training. The Robotics Master of Science In Engineering (M.S.E.) program offers a more balanced and flexible academic curriculum that cuts across multiple departments.

Undergraduate Research

The GRASP Lab provides a variety of opportunities for undergraduate students that support and promote high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.
