Minor in Robotics

The Minor in Robotics provides students with a foundation in the fundamental areas of the interdisciplinary field of robotics. Together with a degree in engineering or computer science, the Minor in Robotics prepares students for careers and graduate studies in robotics. Students may obtain a Minor in Robotics by taking the following courses.

ROB-UY 2004 Robotic Manipulation and Locomotion 
ROB-UY 3203 Robot Vision  
ROB-UY 3303 Robot Motion and Planning  
ROB-UY 3404 Haptics and Telerobotics in Medicine  

Interested students should allow 4 semesters (two years) to complete the four courses for the Minor in robotics.

In order for the Minor to be awarded and recorded on the official student transcript, the student must obtain an overall 2.00 GPA in the Minor courses.


The courses for the Minor in Robotics have the following prerequisites in computer science, mathematics, and physics.

1) Computer Science - Introduction to Programming
2) Mathematics - Differential Equations and Linear Algebra
3) Physics - Mechanics

Students at NYU Tandon and other schools of NYU who meet the prerequisites may enroll in ROB-UY courses. Various courses across NYU schools and NYU global campuses satisfy these prerequisites, as follows.

1) The Computer Science prerequisite is satisfied by any of the following: CS-UY 1114  or CS-UY 1113  or CS-UY 1133  or ENGR-UH 1000 or CS-UH 1001 or CSCI-SHU 11 or CSCI-SHU 101.

2) The Mathematics prerequisites is satisfied by a single course covering linear algebra and differential equations: MA-UY 2034  or MATH-SHU 265

or by separate courses in linear algebra:
MA-UY 3034  or MATH-UA 140 or MATH-UH 1022 or MATH-SHU 140

and differential equations:
MA-UY 4204  or MATH-UA 262 or MATH-UH 1024 or MATH-SHU 262

3) The Physics prerequisite is satisfied by any of the following: PH-UY 1013  or PHYS-UA 11 or PHYS-UA 91 or ENGR-UH 2012 or PHYS-SHU 11 or PHYS-SHU 91
