Important Dates & Deadlines
ROBO MSE students should refer primarily to the SEAS Graduate Academic Calendar to plan for upcoming events and deadlines. This calendar supplements Penn’s Three Year Academic Calendar (which is a useful resource, but primarily oriented for undergraduates).
A complete description of the curriculum can be found here.

Students are assigned an academic advisor from the distinguished members of the GRASP faculty. Applicants are encouraged to indicate a potential academic advisor in the personal statement section of the application. A program of study is developed with the academic advisor, who is responsible for monitoring the student’s academic plan and thesis work; the thesis supervisor will be typically the academic advisor.
