Student Body Profile

Each year the MSR program welcomes 15-20 top students from all over the world to join the cohort. Students enter the program with a variety of professional and educational backgrounds, but they typically have undergraduate degrees in traditional robotics-related majors such as mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, and computer science.

Many of the students come to the MSR program immediately after completing their undergraduate education, but it is not uncommon for students to join MSR directly from industry. Some entering students have amassed years of work experience in a range of industries.

Students in the MSR program have several different career plans after graduation. Some seek a robotics-focused job in industry, while others use their MSR experience as a transition into a robotics-related PhD. It is also not uncommon for MSR graduates to have entrepreneurial plans.
