Beginning in April, Penn Engineering and the GRASP Laboratory will offer a new series of online courses in robotics as part of edX’s “MicroMasters” program. Students who earn the Robotics MicroMasters credential are eligible to apply to the accelerated M.S.E. in Robotics program at Penn Engineering. If accepted, that credential will count towards 3 of the 10 required courses in the on-campus Master’s program.
“For the first time, students from around the world can take rigorous, full-length, graduate level Penn Engineering courses online,” said Kostas Daniilidis, director of Penn Engineering Online and Ruth Yalom Stone Professor. “The Robotics MicroMasters provides global access to one of the top robotics research centers in the world and provides a credential that can be used for career enrichment or advancement.”
Robotics MicroMasters instructors include Camillo J. Taylor, the director of the M.S.E in Robotics, Dan Lee, the director of the GRASP Lab, Dan Koditschek, Alfred Fitler Moore Professor, Kostas Daniilidis, Mark Yim, Jianbo Shi and Vijay Kumar, the Nemirovsky Family Dean of Penn Engineering.
