Students of the Robotics Engineering program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute do much more than actually study robots—they build them, interact with them, explore their design and function, and push them to their limits.


Key Features

As the first program in the nation, the Robotics Engineering program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute is built with aspiring robotics professionals in mind. Only at WPI will you find this hands-on approach that combines expert knowledge with real-world applications.

If you’re already a student in FIRST, you’re in good company—and you may also be eligible to apply for one or more WPI scholarships. WPI faculty and students designed and wrote WPILib, the FRC Control System software used by all of the nearly 1,700 FIRST teams.

Programme Structure

  • At WPI, you won’t just learn about robots in a classroom. You’ll design robots, control their behavior, and understand their use as you study the core disciplines of Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
  • Complementary coursework in social implications and entrepreneurship provide the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
